Cue Sheet

OPENER    Basic

Walk around that corner girl, see saw your own
Join hands circle to the left, go walking around you go
Men star by the right in the middle and roll it around and then
Allemande that corner girl and weave around the ring
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight
Swing your girl around and promenade tonight
We'll all have possum gravy, oh what a wonderful sight
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Those heads (sides) promenade take her 1/2 around you go
Down the middle square thru four hands around you know
Go all the way around then touch 1/4 there
Scoot back, the boy go in, boy run around the girl again
Star thru, pass thru, trade by and swing
Swing that corner girl and promenade the ring
We'll all have possum gravy, oh what a wonderful sight
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
My children are hungry, my dog needs a bone
I ain't got no job, now I'm just driving home
It's dark and it's dusty, but what a wonderful sight
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight

Circle left
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight
Allemande the corner girl and promenade tonight
We'll all have possum gravy, oh what a wonderful sight
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight


CLOSER    Basic

Four boys promenade go once inside the ring
Get back swing your honey 'round and 'round I sing
Join hands circle to the left, go walking around you go
Allemande that corner girl and weave around the ring
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight
If I can run him over, everything's gonna be alright
We'll all have possum gravy, oh what a wonderful sight
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight


TAG

Swing her
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight

Five Pounds Of Possum Lyrics ID: 3061

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

There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight
If I can run him over, everything will be all right
We'll have some possum gravy, oh what a beautiful sight
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight

Won't have to kill no chickens, 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

There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight
If I can just run him over, everything will be all right
We'll have some possum gravy, oh what a beautiful sight
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight

There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight
If I can just run him over, everything will be all right
We'll have some possum gravy, oh what a beautiful sight
There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight

There's five pounds of possum in my headlights tonight

Lyrics by Timothy Warren White.
