Tonight I'm Playin' Possum

Album: Influence Vol. 1: The Man I Am (2013)
  • I'm gonna need a strong one,
    It's gonna be a long one
    In case you haven't heard, he stopped loving her today
    So I'm dusting off the vinyl
    It's gonna be an all nighter
    I'm warning you now, from here on out
    Boys, I'll be the DJ

    So, find a drink or find the road
    I'm about to drop a needle on some ole No-Show
    You're gonna want an ashtray and a bottle
    I'm going deep and going long
    Till I run that needle through every last song
    He ever sung, so pour 'em strong and smoke 'em if you got 'em
    Tonight, I'm playing Possum

    I'll bet he stepped right up singin',
    Right now, he's bringin'
    Every angel in that House up there to tears
    So, close the doors and lock 'em up
    And if you see me chokin' up
    Just dim the lights, but boys,
    Tonight, what happens here stays here

    So, find a drink or find the road
    I'm about to drop a needle on some ole No-Show
    You're gonna want an ashtray and a bottle
    I'm going deep and going long
    Till I run that needle through every last song
    He ever sung, so pour 'em strong and smoke 'em if you got 'em
    Boys, tonight, I'm playing Possum

    "Bartender's Blues" and "Why, Baby, Why"
    "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes", "Still Doing Time"
    I'm going deep, I'm going long
    Till I run that needle through every last song
    He ever sung, so pour 'em strong and smoke 'em if you got 'em
    Tonight, I'm playing Possum

    Tonight, I'm playing Possum

    I'm gonna need a strong one
    It's gonna be a long one
    In case you haven't heard, he stopped loving her today Writer/s: KEITH GATTIS
