T For Texas (Blue Yodel No. 1) Lyrics

Jimmie Rodgers – T For Texas (Blue Yodel No. 1) Lyrics

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

[Yodel]: O-de-lay-ee-a-lay-ee-o-ly-ee

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 passenger train can haul.

[Yodel]:

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.

[Yodel]:

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 my gal.

[Yodel]:

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.
