lyrics

That possum meat am good to eat (carve him to the heart)
You’ll always find it good and sweet (carve him to the heart)
My dog did bark and I went to see (carve him to the heart)
He had that possum up a tree (carve him to the heart)
Carve that possum - carve that possum, children
Carve that possum - carve him to the heart
Carve that possum - carve that possum, children
Carve that possum - carve him to the heart

I reached up for to pull him in (carve him to the heart)
That possum, he begin to grin (carve him to the heart)
I took him home and dressed him off (carve him to the heart)
I hung him that night in the frost (carve him to the heart)
Carve that possum - carve that possum, children
Carve that possum - carve him to the heart
Carve that possum - carve that possum, children
Carve that possum - carve him to the heart

The way you cook that possum sound (carve him to the heart)
Is parboil him and bake him brown (carve him to the heart)
Put sweet potatoes in the pan (carve him to the heart)
The sweetest meat in all the land (carve him to the heart)
Carve that possum - carve that possum, children
Carve that possum - carve him to the heart
Carve that possum - carve that possum, children
Carve that possum - carve him to the heart
