The Ballad of Possum Potez
written by Rodney Crowell
Album: "Jewel of the South"
4/3/06


INTRO: A

A                    E
Dayton, Texas rodeo, Possum Potez stole the show
                      A
Way back in 1968, the night he rode ol' Pearly Gates
                                           E
There was a spinnin' buckin' ton of death, and everybody held their breath
                                          A
But Possum rode him to a draw, it was the best bullride that I ever saw


CHORUS:
D
Possum, Possum, where are you
   A
No one rides bulls like you used to
     D
They haul you off in the ambulance
        A                    F#m
And you show up later at the victory dance
D
Possum, Possum, get back home
         A
We ain't had no fun since you've been gone
          D
With your two-pack habit and a six-pack buzz
A                          F#m
You're the best that there ever was
A                          E    A
You're the best that there ever was


INTRO


Ah two-lane blacktop, highway flyin', that's ol' Possum, I ain't lyin'
An 8-track tape deck blastin' Jones, Ernest Tubb and the Rollin' Stones
In the beerjoints down by the buckin' shoots, the cowgirls swore that he was so cute
They just loved the way he cocked his hat, now Possum had it all down pat


CHORUS


SOLO


Ah the Rainbow Cafe all jokes aside, the day ol' Possum liked to died
Some sweet thing flashed him a blue-eyed grin, it made old Possum's style kick in 
A jealous cowboy, drunk and wild, pulled a pistol and a bullet fired
Blood was shed out in the parkin' lot but it was not Possum wound up shot


CHORUS:
D
Possum, Possum, where are you
   A
No one rides bulls like you used to
     D
They haul you off in the ambulance
        A                    F#m
And you show up later at the victory dance
D
Possum, Possum, get back home
         A
We ain't had no fun since you've been gone
          D
With your two-pack habit and a six-pack buzz
A                          F#m
You're the best that there ever was
A                          E    D
You're the best that there ever was
A                          E    A  
You're the best that there ever was
