"T for Texas (Blue Yodel No. 1)" as written by and 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 passenger 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

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 with a big long shiny belt
Gonna get me a shotgun with a big long shiny belt
Gonna shoot that rounder the one who stole away my gal

T for Texas, T for Tennessee
