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

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

2. 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.
