Molly Hatchet – T For Texas lyrics

T for Texas T for Tennessee (repeat) T for Thelma that gal that made a wreck
Out of me. (yodel) (Second verse) If you don't want me, mamma, you don't have
To call (repeat)'Cause I can get more women than a passenger train can
Haul.(yodel) (Third verse) I'm gonna buy me a pistol just as long as I am tall
(repeat) I'm gonna shoot poor Thelma just to see her jump and fall. (yodel) I'm
Goin' where the water drinks like cherry wine (repeat) 'Cause that Georgia
Water tastes like turpintine. (yodel) (fourth verse) I'm goin' to buy me a
Shotgun with a big long shiny barrel (repeat) I'm goin' to shoot that lyin' dog
That stole away my gal.(yodel) (fifth verse) Rather drink muddy water, sleep in
A hollow log (repeat) Than to be in Atlanta-treated like a dirty dog. (yodel)
