one night my grandaddy came up to the house

asking for me and would I help out

being eight years old I said what could I do

he wanted me to help him with some mountain dew

and there were sparks flying in the moon light

I helped bank the coals to get it just right

grandad and me we worked until dawn

keeping his still chugging along

the sheriff stopped by asking for me

and wanted to know where that still could be

my grandaddy told me not to say a word

he gave me four dollars to be seen and not heard

and there were sparks flying in the moon light

I helped bank the coals to get it just right

grandad and me we worked until dawn

keeping his still chugging along

the nature of family is help when you can

life is tough so lend a hand

making ends meet can be hard on you

even if its not the right thing to do

granddad and me always made shine

I never thought that still would be mine

me and my son we follow his plan

third generation of a whisky makin' man

and there were sparks flying in the moon light

I helped bank the coals just to get it right

my son and me we worked until dawn

keeping the still chugging along
