Poet, Fool or Bum is a 1973 album by musician Lee Hazlewood.

The album was not as well received as his previous work. NME's Charles Shaar Murray answered the question posed by the title in a one-word review with "bum."

The song "Think I'm Coming Down" was featured in the final episode of Season Two of the HBO comedy Eastbound & Down in 2010.

"Wind, Sky, Sea and Sand" was featured in the FX series The Bridge in the premiere episode of season 2. http://www.tunefind.com/show/the-bridge-us/season-2/18614
