Dayton Texas rodeo Possum Potez stole the show
Way back in 1968 the night he rode ol' Pearly Gates
It was a spinning bucking ton of death and everybody held their breath
Possum rode him to a draw it was the best bull ride I ever saw
Possum Possum where are you no one rides bulls like you used to
They haul you off in the ambulance and you show up later at the victory dance
Possun Possum get back home we ain't had no fun since you've been gone
With your two pack habit and a six pack buzz you're the best that there ever was
You're the best that there ever was
Two lone black top highway flyin' that's ol' possum I ain't lyin'
Eight track tape deck Blasting Jones Ernest Tubb and The Rolling Stones
In the beer joints and down by the bucking shoots
The cowgirls swore that he was so cute
They just love the way that he cocked his hat Possum had it all down pat
