Lyrics
Well, I was sent to a place in North Carolina
To check up on a moonshine still
When I got there to my surprise
I could see a little light on the hill

Well, the fire was a glowing and really I was knowing
I was really hot on the track
But in D.C. they said it couldn't be
Well I'll be the one to bring 'em back

'Cause I'm a revenooer man
Yeah, I'm a revenooer man
I got a badge in my pocket and a gun on my hip
Them moonshiners better never make a slip
'Cause I'm a revenooer man
Yeah, I'll get 'em if I can

Well the moon was shining bright and I looked down the river
I noticed on the side of the hill
I can see a red light that was glowing right bright
I knew it had to be a still

There were people down the road said it wasn't far
But I better know someone
'Cause when the moonshiners know I carry a star
I'll bet my bottom dollar I'll have 'em on the run

'Cause I'm a revenooer man
Yes, I'm a revenooer man
I got a badge in my pocket and a gun on my hip
Them moonshiners better never make a slip
'Cause I'm a revenooer man
Yeah, I'll get 'em if I can

Well when I got back the woods was a bare
They must've knew I was on my way
Well, I heard the branches shatter and they started to scatter
I heard two or three of them say

It's the revenooer man
Yeah, It's the revenooer man
He got a big 45 with loads to fill
Dragging and a shagging to another hill
It's the revenooer man
And he'll get us if he can
