Sung By: R.K. Moore Benton, Arkansas November 26, 1960
Reel 381; Item 7
Way down South there's a sly old possum Up in a sycamore tree.
And his name is Rufus Johnson,
Black as a niger could be.
He's got a head like a big sledge hammer Mouth like a terrible scar.
He was a-raised in Alabama And he played on his old gitar.
