Urgent Research Needed on Ol' Possum


Wapella.com readers, I need your help. Does anyone have the lyrics for George Jones' classic comedy-rock-country song "Root Beer"? It is from back in the 1950's (I think) and has all the elements of the best work of Mr. No-Show, albeit a light touch and not nearly as emotional as many of his forlon ballads...well a bit emotional as it is something of a paeon to not having enough alcohol, and being left to drink "Root Beer".


Anyone have this? I have searched high and low on the Internet for this.

As promised...George Jones'
