Possum Kingdom by Toadies
-------------------------

Pretty cool song to play.  Guitar 1 plays the chords while guitar 2 plays ...
during some of the verses.  Palm the strings and and slide down with your hand
while going wild on the wammy.  Listen to song for rhythm.

(verse 1)
Make up your mind
Decide to walk with me
Around the lake tonite
Around the lake tonite
By my side

I'm not gonna lie
I'll not be a gentle men
Behind the boat house
I'll show you my dark secret

I'm not gonna lie
I want you for mine
My flesh and blood
My lover be mine lover yeah

(bridge)
Don't be afraid
I didn't mean to scare you
So help me Jesus

(verse 2)
I can promise you
You won't stay as beautiful
With dark hair
And soft skin
Forever
Forever

Make up your mind
Make up your mind
And I'll promise you

I will treat you well
My sweet angel
So help me Jesus

(bridge)
Give it up to me
Give it up to me
Do you want to be my angel
Give it up to me
Give it up to me
Do you wanna be my angel
So help me

(verse 3)
Be my angel
Be my angel
Do you wanna die (4 x's)
Well I'll promised you
I will treat you well
My sweet angel
So help me Jesus

	     'Possum Kingdom' by the Toadies
	        from the album 'Rubberneck'

  The transcriptions that have been posted so far were incorrect,
  so heres my shot at it.

    chords (from low E to high E)

   A     - x02220   D    - xx0232
   Asus4 - x02230   E    - 022100
   B     - x24442   F#   - 244322
   C     - x32010   G#7  - 464544 
   C#    - x46664

    during the 'give it up to me' bridge, its easier to use
    barre chords for A (577655) and D (x57775) chords

      riff #1 (played intermittently during verses)
