I parked my car 'round back 
I've got the shades pulled down 
I told everybody including my mama 
I was leaving town 
But I've been right here 
Since you've been gone 
Belly-up at the bottom of a bottle 
Listening to George Jones 

And just playin' possum 
Laying low 
I've got hundred watts of hurtin' 
Coming through the speakers of my stereo 
Don't want to see nobody 
Nowhere I want to go 
I'm just playin' possum 
And laying low 

I'm gonna hide my heart 
And be a love recluse 
Oh I could cry on my best friend's shoulder 
But there ain't no use 
I need an expert on 
The pain I'm going through 
So I'll keep George on the old turntable 
'Til I'm over you 

And just playin' possum 
Laying low 
I've got hundred watts of hurtin' 
Coming through the speakers of my stereo 
Don't want to see nobody 
Nowhere I want to go 
I'm just playin' possum 
And laying low 

He's playin' possum 
And he's laying low
