You love her I know but I won't let you go I just won't step by all the way
Cause you're married to me and I won't set you free
Possession is nine-tenths of the law so they say
I'll keep you as long as I possibly can you were mine before she came our way
I refused to abide and I won't step aside
Possession is nine-tenths of the law so they say
Forgive me for bein' so selfish but for me there's just no other way
I just want to hold arms do what's rightfully mine
Possession is nine-tenths of the law so they say
[ ac. Guitar + steel ]
Forgive me for being so selfish...
