Lyrics

T for Texas, T for TennesseeT for ThelmaThat gal made a wreck out of me.
O-de-lay-ee-a-lay-ee-o-ly-ee
If you don't want me mamaYou sure don't have to stallIf you don't want me mamaYou sure don't have to stall'Cause I can get more womenThan a passenger train can haul.
I'm gonna buy me a pistolJust as long as I'm tall, Lawd, LawdI'm gonna buy me a pistolJust as long as I'm tallI'm gonna shoot poor ThelmaJust to see her jump and fall.
I'm gonna buy me a shotgunWith a great long shiny barrelI'm gonna buy me a shotgunWith a great long shiny barrelI'm gonna shoot that rounderThat stole my gal.
Rather drink muddy waterSleep in a hollow logRather drink muddy waterAnd sleep in a hollow logThan to be in AtlantaTreated like a dirty dog.
