The Possum’s Tail Is Bare

An American old-timey tune which is played at one of my local sessions. It has a nice modulation in bar 2 of the "B" part.

Thank for posting that link, airport. Nice take on the tune!

Ya’ll sing along! ;-)

The Possum’s Tail Is Bare
—————————————-

Squirrel’s got a bushy tail
Puppy grows the hair;
The old coon’s tail, has rings all around,
But the possum’s tail is bare.

Oh the possum’s tail is bare,
Oh the possum’s tail is bare;
The old coon’s tail, has rings all around,
But the possum’s tail is bare.

Git your possum by the tail,
Then you’ll skin him by the rail,
Never ever more will he be there,
Grinnin’ at the moon.
