Dolly Parton – Possum Holler lyrics

Duet by Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner
Writer Dallas Frazier
Copyright 1967

As time goes by the tales grow taller about possum in Possum Holler
As a young man I'd go a courtin' with my sweetheart so young and fair
Down the mountain to Possum Holler that's where he'd always find me waitin'
There
Now I tell my mama that I's goin' out walkin' neath the moonlight so bright and
Fair
And I'd tell daddy I was huntin' possum
And take off a grinnin' and a slickin' down my hair
As time goes by the tales grow taller about possum in Possum Holler
Then one evening in Possum Holler my sweetheart's daddy stopped all our fun
Yeah we got married in Possum Holler just you and me my daddy and daddy's gun
As time goes by the tales grow taller about possum in Possum Holler
Now when they see a possum hunter young and handsome and a smellin' fair
We just lean back and bust our laughin' cause we know there ain't no possum
There
As time goes by the tales grow taller about possum in Possum Holler
About possum in Possum Holler
