Best Of All Possible Worlds Written and recorded by Kris Kristofferson
G E7 I was runnin' through the summer rain tryin' to catch the evenin' train A7 And kill that ole familiar pain weavin' through my tangled brain D7 G But when I tipped my bottle back I smacked into a cop I didn't see
E7 That policeman said Mr. Cool if you're ain't drunk then you're a fool A7 I said if that's against the law tell me why I never saw D7 A man locked in that jail of yours G Who wadn't just as lowdown poor as me
E7 A7 C Well that was when someone turned out the lights D7 G And I wound up in jail to spend the night C Am And dream of all the wine and lonely girls D7 G In this best of all possible worlds
E7 Well I woke up next morning feelin' like my head was gone A7 And like my thick ol' tongue was lickin' somethin' sick and wrong D7 And I told that man I'd sell my soul for somethin' wet G And cold as that ol' cell
E7 That kindly jailer grinned at me all eaten up with sympathy A7 Then bought his self another beer and came and whispered in my ear D7 G If booze was just a dime a bottle boy you couldn't even buy the smell
E7 A7 C I said I knew there was somethin' I liked about this town D7 G But it takes more than that to bring me down down down C Am Cause there's still a lot of wine and lonely girls D7 G In this best of all possible worlds
E7 Well they finally came and told me they was a gonna set me free A7 And I'd be leavin' town if I knew what was good for me D7 G I said it's nice to learn that everybody's so concerned about my health
E7 I said I won't be leavin' no more quicker than I can A7 Cause I've enjoyed about as much of this as I can stand D7 And I don't need this town of yours more G Than I've never needed nothing else
E7 A7 C Cause there's still a lotta drinks that I ain't drunk D7 G And lots of pretty thoughts that I ain't thunk oh yeah C Am Lord there's still so many lonely girls D7 G In this best of all possible worlds
