Cttthollo Standard sad Times,
Kentucky's hills are full of rills
And all the rills are lined witb stills,
And all the stills are full of gills,
And all the gills are full of thrills,
And all the thrills are full of kills.
Yon see, the feudists dot the bills
And camp along the little nils,
Convenient to the busy stills
And thirsting from the brimming
And wben the juice his system fills
Each feudist whoops around and
Now, if they'd only stop the stills
Thev'd cure Kentucky's manv ills-
Men would be spared to climb the
And operate the busy stills.
However, this would mean more gills
And that, of course, would mean more
Resulting in the same old kills.
So all the h ills and rills and stills
Aud all the gills and thrills and kills
Are splendid for the coffin mills
And makes more undertaker's bills.
