      Steve Earle - Copperhead Road Música y Letra

      Well my name's John Lee Pettimore 
      Same as my daddy and his daddy before 
      You hardly ever saw Grandaddy down here 
      He only came to town about twice a year 
      He'd buy a hundred pounds of yeast and some copper line 
      Everybody knew that he made moonshine 
      Now the revenue man wanted Grandaddy bad 
      He headed up the holler with everything he had 
      It's before my time but I've been told 
      you never come back from Copperhead Road
      
      grandaddy ran the whiskey in a big block Dodge 
      Bought it at an auction at the Mason's Lodge 
      Johnson County Sheriff painted on the side 
      Just shot a coat of primer then he looked inside 
      Well him and my uncle tore that engine down 
      I still remember that rumblin' sound 
      Well the sheriff came around in the middle of the night 
      Heard mama cryin', knew something wasn't right 
      He was headed down to Knoxville with the weekly load 
      You could smell the whiskey burnin' down Copperhead Road
      
      I volunteered for the Army on my birthday 
      They draft the white trash first,'round here anyway 
      I done two tours of duty in Vietnam 
      And I came home with a brand new plan 
      I take the seed from Colombia and Mexico 
      I plant it up the holler down Copperhead Road 
      Well the D.E.A.'s got a chopper in the air 
      I wake up screaming like I'm back over there 
      I learned a thing or two from ol' Charlie don't you know 
      You better stay away from Copperhead Road
      
      Copperhead Road 
      Copperhead Road 
      Copperhead Road
