SHITKICKIN? MUSIC
lyrics and music by Sam Cooper

Now old Ben Hawkins had a buildin? on the hill,
With bottles, jugs and fluids for the makin?s of a still,
You could drink it in the light, you could drink it all the time,
You could drink it in the dark, ?cause in the dark it shined,
Moonshine, corn? squeezin?s?

Now a revenuer came around one day, hopin? to put ol? Ben away,
The revenuer planned to do a job on Ben?s head,
But Ben was gonna fill that t-man?s britches with lead,
?was gonna introduce him to ol? Bessie,
That?s his favorite shootin? iron?
And he said,

(chorus)
Shit kickin? music is the way it oughta be,
Say the folks from Virginny all the way to Tennessee,
You can stomp on the ground, you can stomp on the grass,
But when they git to feudin?, gonna stomp a lotta ass.

Well, the revenuer came a trompin? up the mountainside,
But Ben won?t scared and he wasn?t gonna hide,
The revenuer poked his nose a little too far,
And he got some painful memories and buckshot scars?
Right where he don?t tan, that?s where ol? Ben shot that man,
He said?(to chorus and solos)

Well shit kickin? music is the way it oughta be,
Say the folks from New Jersey all the way to Tennessee,
You can stomp on the ground, you can smoke all the grass,
But when we git horny, gonna grab a piece of ass?

?Cause shit kickin? music is the music fer us,
Shit kickin? music makes you wanna jump and cus,
If you wanna git rid of them down home blues,
Then shit kickin?music is the music fer yooz?(to repeated choruses
