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

O-de-lay-ee-a-lay-ee-o-ly-ee

If you don't want me mama
You sure don't have to stall, Lawd Lawd
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

O-de-lay-ee-a-lay-ee-o-ly-ee

I'm gonna buy me a pistol
Just as long as I'm tall, Lawd, Lawd
I'm gonna buy me a pistol
Just as long as I'm tall
I'm gonna shoot poor Thelma
Just to see her jump and fall

O-de-lay-ee-a-lay-ee-o-ly-ee

I'm goin' where the water
Drinks like cherry wine, ding on boys, ding 'em
Lord I'm goin' where the water
Drinks like cherry wine
'Cause the Georgia water
Tastes like turpentine

O-de-lay-ee-a-lay-ee-o-ly-ee

I'm gonna buy me a shotgun
With a great long shiny barrel
I'm gonna buy me a shotgun
With a great long shiny barrel
I'm gonna shoot that rounder
That stole away my gal

O-de-lay-ee-a-lay-ee-o-ly-ee

Rather drink muddy water
Sleep in a hollow log
Rather drink muddy water
And sleep in a hollow log
Than to be in Atlanta
Treated like a dirty dog

O-de-lay-ee-a-lay-ee-o-ly-ee
