(Jimmie Rodgers)

T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Telma the gal
Who made a wreck out of me.

If you don't want me mama
You sure don't have to stall
If you don't want me mama
You sure don't have to stall
'Cause I can get more women
Than a passanger train can haul.

Gonna buy me a pistol
Just as long as I'm tall
Gonna buy me a pistol
Just as long as I'm tall
I'm gonna shoot poor Telma
Just to see her jump and fall.

--- Instrumental ---

Rather drink muddy water
Sleep in a hollow log
Rather drink muddy water
Sleep in a hollow log
Than to be in Atlanta
Treated like an old hound dog.

Gonna buy me a shotgun
Wth a big long shiny belt
Gonna get me a shotgun
Wth a big long shiny belt
Gonna shoot that rounder
Te one who stole away my gal.

T for Texas,T for Tennessee
T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Telma the gal
Who made a wreck out of me...
This song is from the album "Tribute to Jimmie Rodgers [Gusto]" and "Salutes the Country Music Hall of Fame [Monument]".
