Lyrics:
One, two, three
Alice shot a possum out of her persimmon tree
And she left it in the orchard for all its possum friends to see
Crack shot with a .22 when she was ninety-three
She was only five feet tall but she was twice as wise as me

Oh, Alice, I wish I knew you better
You're as pretty as a flower
Tough as saddle leather
I learned more from you that day than all life's teachers put together
Oh, Alice
Dear friend of mine

Oh, Alice had a pickup truck and one day we were talking
Said that she was all done driving, she was better off a-walkin'
Said "I sent my driver's license to the local DMV
But the dang fools must be crazy 'cause they sent it back to me"

Oh, Alice, I wish I knew you better
You're as pretty as a flower
Tough as saddle leather
I learned more from you that day than all life's teachers put together
Oh, Alice
Dear friend of mine

Alice never had a husband, brother never took a wife
Yeah, they farmed that Brazos River bottomland near all their life
Brother went to Heaven, Alice covered up his face
Standing by his bedside while she sang "Amazing Grace"

Oh, Alice, I wish I knew you better
You're as pretty as a flower
Tough as saddle leather
I learned more from you that day than all life's teachers put together
Oh, Alice
Dear friend of mine
Oh, Alice
Dear friend of mine
