Copper Kettle (Frank Beddoe) Get you a copper kettle Get you a copper coil Fill it with new made cornmash And never more you'll toil You'll just lay there by the juniper While the moon is bright Watch the jugs a filling In the pale moon light Build your fire with hickory Hickory, ash, and oak Don't use no green or rotten wood They'll catch you by the smoke My daddy, he made whiskey And my granddaddy did too We ain't paid no whiskey tax Since seventeen ninety two Written in 1953 for a folk opera, "Go Lightly, Stranger" Copyright TRO Recorded by Baez RG
