Alan Jackson – Just Playin’ Possum lyrics

(Alan Jackson/Jim Mcbride/Gary Overton)

I parked my car ’round back

I’ve got the shades pulled down

I told everybody including my mama

I was leaving town

But I’ve been right here

Since you’ve been gone

Belly-up at the bottom of a bottle

Listening to George Jones

And just playin’ possum

Laying low

I’ve got hundred watts of hurtin’

Coming through the speakers of my stereo

Don’t want to see nobody

Nowhere I want to go

I’m just playin’ possum

And laying low

I’m gonna hide my heart

And be a love recluse

Oh I could cry on my best friend’s shoulder

But there ain’t no use

I need an expert on

The pain I’m going through

So I’ll keep George on the old turntable

‘Til I’m over you

And just playin’ possum

Laying low

I’ve got hundred watts of hurtin’

Coming through the speakers of my stereo

Don’t want to see nobody

Nowhere I want to go

I’m just playin’ possum

And laying low

He’s playin’ possum

And he’s laying low
