White Lightning
The Big Bopper Lyrics


Well in North Carolina, way back in the hills,
Lived my pappy and he had him a still.
He brewed white lightning 'till the sun went down,
And then he'd fill him a jug, an' pass it around.
Mighty, mighty pleasin', you're pappy's corn squeezin'
White Lightning

Yeah, the G-men, T-men, revenurers too,
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew.
They were lookin', tryin' to book him,
But my pappy kept on cookin'
White Lightning

Well I asked my pappy why call it brew,
White lightning, 'stead of mountain dew.
I took on sip and then I knew,
As my eyes bugged out and my face turned blue.
Mighty, mighty pleasin', you're pappy's corn squeezin'
White Lightning

Yeah, G-men, T-men, revenuers too,
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew.
They were lookin', tryin' book him,
But my pappy kept on cookin'
White Lightning

Well, a city slicker came, and said "I'm mighty tough."
"I think I want to taste that powerful stuff."
He took one s..slug and he drank it right down,
And I heard him a-moanin' as he hit the ground
Mighty, mighty pleasin', you're pappy's corn squeezin'
White Lightning

Yeah, G-men, T-men, revenuers too,
Searchin' for the place where he made his brew.
They were lookin', tryin' book him
But my pappy kept on cookin'
White Lightning!

Buddy holly and Richie valens both had movies about there life's. So how comes noone has made a movie about the big bopper? I am a big fan of all 3. Rip my friends.

Steve Gross I’m sorry to say this but he died in 2013 so he can’t be in the movie...

Steve Gross

The movie would have to include the big bopper jr.

@srujan00 You think Ritchie Valens was more talented than Buddy Holly the greatest influence in Pop music history? I know this is Youtube comments, but even that is too much.

Very underated artist the Bopper yet he played a BIG part in the foundation of Rock and Roll

edward rossman

I agree. He was one of the originals of rock n roll and doesnt get talked about much.

My father had the pleasure of knowing Bopper. I was so upset when he died.

Trent Weston

@Eva Bawdy Feelgood did she tell you any stories about him?
