"Possum" as written by and Mike Gordon....
I come from atop the mountain, baby
Where the people come to pray
I comes from atop the mountain baby
Where the people come to pray

There ain't no truth in action
'Less you believe it anyway

I was riding down the road one day
Someone hit a possum
Riding down the road one day
Someone hit a possum

The road was his end
His end was that road, so they say

Whoa, possum, possum, possum, possum
Whoa, possum, possum, possum, possum
Whoa, possum, possum, your end is the road

I was riding down the road one day
Someone hit a possum
Riding down the road one day
Someone hit a possum

The road was his end
His end was that road, so they say

Whoa, possum, possum, possum, possum
Whoa, possum, possum, possum, possum
Whoa, possum, possum, your end is the road
Whoa, possum, possum, your end is the road

    General CommentThis song is awesome! It's pretty much my favorite Phish tune. Sounds like the song is a story of seeing a possum get hit by a car? Who knows? It's still an awesome song.
