Hersey and Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers both recorded their own very different versions of this song. Andy chalks those differences up to the different singing styles of both artists, and the individual strengths of their voices. He says, "Roger has the Penasco version of 'Mexican Moonshine,' but I can't sing that yodel every night and keep my voice put together. Roger has more talent than I do, so I have to do kind of the Galveston Bay version of it, where it would be sung more solid, more monotone a little bit. Hopefully the same sentiment is there.
Roger starts off with the chorus. Roger starts off with the hook. And I, as a full-on soloist storyteller, start with a little bit of story, and then work my way into 'Mexican moonshine.' I start off with, 'Let the world call 'em crow's feet, we can call 'em laugh lines.' And then I work my way up into the chorus. I don't have the pipes that Roger does, so he gets to sing it however he wants to." (Read more in the Andy Hersey interview
