T for Texas T for Tennessee T for Texas T for Tennessee
T for Telma the gal who made a wreck out of me

If you don't want me mama you sure don't have to stall
If you don't want me mama you sure don't have to stall
Cause I can get more women than a passanger train can haul
Gonna buy me a pistol just as long as I'm tall
Gonna buy me a pistol just as long as I'm tall
I'm gonna shoot poor Telma just to see her jump and fall
[ guitar ]
Rather drink muddy water sleep in a hollow log
Rather drink muddy water sleep in a hollow log
Than to be in Atlanta treated like an old hound dog
Gonna buy me a shotgun with a big long shiny belt
Gonna get me a shotgun with a big long shiny belt
Gonna shoot that rounder the one who stole away my gal
T for Texas T for Tennessee...
