OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
*My uncle Bill has a still on the hill
Where he turns out a gallon or two
The buzzards in the sky get so dizzy they can't fly
Just from smellin' that good ole mountain dew

Circle left
They call it that good ole mountain dew, Lawd, Lawd
Left allemande, c'mon promenade
The buzzards in the sky get so dizzy they can't fly
Just from smellin' that good ole mountain dew


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*My uncle Nort, he's sawed off & short
He measures only four foot two
But he thinks he's a giant when you give him a pint
Of that good ole mountain dew


*Down the road from me, there's an ole hollow tree
Where you lay down a dollar or two
Well you go around the bend and when you come back again
There's a jug of that good ole mountain dew


FIGURE    C4, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands around you go
Meet that corner lady dosado
Curlique and then, walk & dodge my friend
Partner trade and do the right & left thru
Pass the ocean now, recycle on around
Oh swing that lady, promenade
The buzzards in the sky get so dizzy they can't fly
Just from smellin' that good ole mountain dew

Old Mountain Dew Lyrics ID: 606

My brother Bill runs a still on the hill
Where he turns out a gallon or two
And the buzzards in the sky get so drunk they can not fly
Just from sniffing that good old mountain dew.

Chorus
They call it that good old mountan dew,
And them that refuse it are few.
I'll hush up my mug if you'll fill up my jug
With that good old mountain dew.

My aunt Lucille had an automobile,
It ran on a gallon or two.
It didn't need no gas and it didn't need no oil,
It just ran on that good old mountain dew.

Repeat chorus

My uncle Mort, he is sawed off and short,
He measure 'bout four foot two,
But he thinks he's a giant when you give him a pint
Of that good old mountain dew.

Repeat chorus

Old Auntie June had a brand new perfume,
It had such a wonderful "pew"
But to her surprise, when she had it analyzed,
It was nothing but that good old mountain dew

Repeat chorus

I know a guy named Pete, his hair ain't so neat,
Though he fixes it with syrup and blue,
But it stays right in place when he uses just a trace
Of that good old mountain dew.

Repeat chorus

The preacher, he walked by, with a big tear in his eye
Said that his wife had the flu
And hadn't I ought just to give him a quart
Of that good old mountain dew

Repeat chorus

My uncle Klaus had a real mean old mouse
When they asked how it happened,
He said it was a lappin'
That good old mountain dew

Repeat chorus

There's an old hollow tree, just a little way from me
Where you lay down a dollar or two
If you hush up your mug, then they'll give you a jug
Of that good old mountain dew

Repeat chorus

You take a little trash and you mix it up with ash,
And you throw in the soul of a shoe,
Then you stir it awhile with an old rusty file,
And they call it that good old mountain dew.

Repeat chorus

During the last war, we couldn't get no more,
We didn't have no sugar for the dew
With a few old potaters and a few ripe tomaters,
We turned out some stuff, I'm tellin' you

Repeat chorus

Old Deacon Crane took a trip in the rain,
Said his wife had come down with the flu,
But she'll be all right if you give her a pint
Of that good old mountain dew.

Repeat chorus

Mr. Franklin Roosevelt, he told me how he felt
The day the old dry law went through:
If your likker's too red, it will swell up your head
Better stick to that good old mountain dew

Lyrics by Bascom Lamar Lunsford.
