Heard me a story about this brother Heard he was more than a hundred years old Beat up and robbed by friends of his, or so he thought Which proves this world can still be cold But even old, bent Florida sunshine trees Stand a little bit taller today And you can hear the whisper from the seaside breeze This is what they say Possum Slim Don't you mess with him. Yeah the brother took all he could This story don't prove that he ain't no good Possum Slim (my man) Don't you mess with him Brother said he been robbed so many times I reckon he just couldn't take it no more Took a five dollar bill downtown With a bottle of gin Birthday party for a woman he knows (Knows her well) But now they got Slim in a Florida jail Just waitin to go on trial Sun known Slim for a hundred years The sun can't help but smile Possum Slim is alright with me Don't you mess with him (Got to understand) The brother took all he could
