Best Of All Possible Worlds Recorded by Roger Miller Written by Kris Kristofferson
G E7 I was runnin' through the summer rain
Tryin' to catch that evenin' train A7 And kill that old familiar pain
Weevin' through my tangled brain D7 But when I tipped my bottle back G 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 well if that's against the law
Then 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
Am Well that was when someone turned out the lights D7 G And I wound up in jail to spend the nights C 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 old tongue was lickin'
Somethin' sick and wrong D7 And I told that man I'd sell my soul G If somethin' wet and cold is that old cell
E7 That kindly jailer just grinned at me
All eaten up with sympathy A7 Then he bought himself another beer
And came and whispered in my ear D7 That booze was just a dime a bottle boy G You couldn't even buy the smell
Am 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 down C But 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 they 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 I said it's nice to learn that G Everybody's so concerned about my health
E7 I said I won't be leavin'
No more quicker than I possibly can A7 Cause I've enjoyed about
This much of this as I can stand D7 And I don't need this town of yours G More than I never needed nothin' else
Am Cause there's still a lotta drinks that I ain't drunk D7 G Lots of pretty thoughts that I ain't never thunk oh yeah C Lord there's still so many lonely girls D7 G In this best of all possible worlds
