Yeah, T for Texas, T for Tennessee
I said, "T for Texas, T for Tennessee"
T for that no good woman, no good gal
That made a wreck out of me, Lord
Take it man

I'd rather drink myself muddy water
Sleep all night in a hollow log
I'd rather drink a muddy water
Sleep all day and night in a hollow log
Than to hang around and now be put down
And treated like a dirty dog, listen

If you don't want me woman
Just say so "That's all"
If you don't want me woman
All you gotta do is come around and say so "That's all"
'Cause I can get myself more women
Than another two men or a passenger train can haul, hit it

T for Texas, T for Tennessee
I said "T for Texas another T for Tennessee"
T for Thelma, no good gal
That made a wreck of me, Lord
Come hear me yodel
