K:C [C]Down in the south where the sly old 'possum, Hides in the sycamore [G]tree. [C]There lived a man name of Rufus Blossom, [D]Ugly as a sinner could [G]be. [C]Rufe had a head like a big sledge hammer, Mouth like a terrible [G]scar. But [F]nothing could touch him in Ala-[C]bama, When he played on his [G]old gui-[C]tar. {i}Chorus:{/i} {i}Don't make no [C]blunder, You couldn't [G]lose him.{/i} {i}A perfect [F]wonder, They had to [C]choose him.{/i} {i}A great musician, Of high po-[F]sition,{/i} {i}Was [C]Whistling Rufus, the [G]one man [C]band.{/i} [C]Miles he would tramp to a ball or a party, In rainy weather or [G]fine. [C]When he arrived he was welcomed hearty, [D]Out came the chicken and [G]wine. [C]When he was done with the wine and the chicken, He'd play and whistle so [G]grand, You'd [F]think that the angels on harps were pickin', And they [C]called him the [G]One Man [C]Band. {i}Chorus{/i}
