Oh, give me a T for Texas, give me a T for Tennessee
Oh, give me a T for Texas, give me a T for Tennessee
Give me a T for Thelma, woman made a fool out of me

And if you don't want me baby, mama, you sure don't got to stall
And you don't want me baby, mama, you sure don't got to stall
Well, I had more pretty women than a passenger train can haul

Gonna buy myself a shotgun, one with a long shiny barrel
Gonna buy myself a shotgun, one with a long shiny barrel
I'm gonna shoot me a rounder, oh, that stole away my gal

Rather drink your muddy water, sleep down in a hollow log
I'd rather drink your muddy water, sleep down in a hollow log
Than to be in Atlanta, Georgia, treat him like a dirty dog
I don't have to go for that

If you don't want me baby, mama, you sure don't got to stall
Oh, if you don't want me baby, well mama, you sure don't got to stall
And I had more pretty women than a passenger train can haul
That ain't all

Rather drink your muddy water, sleep down in a hollow log
Rather drink your muddy water, sleep down in a hollow log
Log, log, log, yeah
Than to be in Atlanta, Georgia, treated like a dirty dog

Oh, give me a T for Texas, give me a T for Tennessee
Give me a T for Thelma, woman made a fool out of me
Oh, give me a T-T for Texas, give me that T for Tennessee
Give me a T for Thelma, oh, woman made a fool out of me
One more time

Give me a T for Thelma, oh that woman made a fool
I said, "Oh, that woman made a fool out of me, yeah"
