The possum up a gumstraw, cup of coffee, etc were from Moon Mullicans New Jole Blon which went to #2 on the C&W charts in 1946. His actual lyrics will probably never be known for sure unless someone can record the version on YouTube, slow it down, and get them that way. He changed them every live performance.

Mullican hated the fans and if you listen closely to a live performance you can hear him shout 'oh shatonia' and other deragatory terms.
