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
