Dwight Yoakam – T For Texas lyrics

(jimmie rodgers)

I said t for texas
T for tennessee
Oh, yeah, I said t for texas
T for tennessee
Said, t for old thelma
The gal who made a wreck out of me

Well, if you don't want me momma
You sure don't have to start
Ah, if you don't want me momma
You sure don't have to start
'cause I can get more women
Than a passenger train car

Yeah, I said t for texas
T for tennessee
Whoa, t for texas
T for tennessee
I said, t for old thelma
The gal who made a wreck out of me

I'm gonna buy me a pistol
Just as long as I am tall
I'm going to buy me a pistol
Just as long as I am tall
I'm gonna shoot down old mean thelma
Just to watch her jump and fall

I said t for texas
T for tennessee
I said t for texas
T for tennessee
T for old thelma
The gal who made a wreck out of me

Gonna buy me a shotgun
With a great long shiny barrel, oh yeah
I'm gonna buy me a shotgun
With a great long shiny barrel
Gonna shoot down that rounder
That stole away my girl

I'm going where the water
Tastes like cherry wine
Yeah, I'm going where the water
Tastes like cherry wine
'cause the water down here in georgia
Tastes like turpentine

I said t for texas
T for tennessee
Oh I said, t for texas
T for tennessee
I said t for old thelma
The gal who made a wreck out of me
Oh yeah, women make a fool out of me
