Written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant.
Good stuff.

Like Copperhead Road, "Strangers don't come down from Rocky Top".

I didn't know Robert Mitchum was a song writer!

Another for Earl's copperhead road.

Hard to top Earle's version of his best song, Copperhead Road. That vocal tone says "Keep Out"!

Don't know a single one, but then, I am from the UK, where we have no bootleggers. Perhaps a smuggling song would do, but I'm not sure I know one of them either ….

This one is close, about gun smugglers and change by Al Stewart:

Honorable mention. Roads to Moscow. Haunting melody, wonderful visuals:

Surely there must be "Moonshiners" in the UK!
They certainly have them in Ireland, and the Scots can't be far behind.
"The Moonshiner", by the Clancy Brothers.
