Five Pounds of Possum

My children are hungry, my dog needs a bone.
                     E7                   A7  
I'm out of a job now, so I'm just drivin' home.
An hour after sundown, when what to my delight,
       D                              A            D      
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight.


 There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight.
If I can just run him over, every thing will be all right.
We'll have some possum gravy, oh what a beautiful sight;
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight.

Won't have to clean no chicken, won't have to open no cans.
Just a little bit closer, and I'll have him in my hands.
I think the time has come now, to go from "dim" to "bright."
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight.

Thanks Aussief....I see the 1 rating came from Sweden; maybe they are more familiar with this song than I am. I just heard it on you tube, I think it was...

great job, I add a G in the middle of the 1st and 3rd lines and then go back to D at the end of the line just to break it up a little I also add a single G (short walk?) between the A and D of the last line. I capo on the first and play baritone uke
