Well, T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Thelma, the gal that made a wreck out of me

If you don't want me mama, you sure don't have to stall, oh no
If you don't want me mama, you sure don't have to stall
'Cause I can get more women than a passenger train can haul

But I'm going with a woman drinks like cherry wine
I'm going with water drinks like cherry wine
'Cause it's Georgia woman tastes like turpentine

If you don't want me woman sure don't have to stall
If you don't want me woman you sure don't have to stall
For I can get more women than a passenger train can haul

I'd rather drink muddy water and sleep in a hollow log
I'd rather drink muddy water and sleep in a hollow log
Than to be here in Atlanta, get treated like a dirty dog
Women make a fool out of me

If you're ever down in Mobile you can look me up
If you're ever down in Mobile be sure to look me up
And if you're ever in Atlanta tell Lucille to go to hell
Women make a fool out of me

T for Texas, T for Tennessee, lord, lord
T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Thelma, the gal that made a wreck out of me
(Fade)
