Hardwood Mountain Whiskey

popcorn A 2.tif

a way up high deep in the dense dark woods

old timers knew and lovingly understood

by chopping hickory for a hot dancing fire

boiling corn into water with a feverish desire

clear mountain whiskey searing like a devil’s tail

aging in barrels lost as the mail

years trickle by as it turns brown

down from the mountain and drank in the towns

hard mountain whiskey smoke from a gun

thirsty as hell burnt from the sun

down from the mountain and into the bars

then some midnight magic peering at the stars
