Liberty! Liberty! And no exercise on whiskey.
We work and then we drink
And we don't care what you think
We'll have no exercise on whiskey.

Well, the Marshall David Lennox and the taxman John Neville
Tried to get the farmers, who wouldn't foot the bill.
Then 500 men surrounded, down at Neville's house porch
They and soldiers exchanged gunshots, put his house to torch.
