Possum Holler

This song is by George Jones and appears on the album If My Heart Had Windows (1968) and on the compilation album I'm a One Woman Man (1994).

As time goes by the tales grow taller
About possum in Possum Hollar.

As a young man I'd go a courtin'
With my sweetheart named Sally Blair
Down the mountain to Possum Hollar
Accidentally I'd find her waitin' there.

She'd tell her mama she's pickin' blossoms
By the moonlight so sweet and fair
And I'd tell daddy I'm a-huntin' possum
And take off grinin' and slickin' down my hair.

As time goes by the tales grow taller
About possum in Possum Hollar.

Then one evening in Possum Hollar
Sally's daddy stopped all my fun
And we got married in Possum Hollar
Just me and Sally, her daddy and his gun.

Now when I see a' possum hunter
Young and handsome and a fanfair
Well, I just lean back, ha, and bust out laughin'
'Cause I know there ain't no possums there.

As time goes by the tales grow taller
About possum in Possum Hollar.
