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
