T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Thelma, the gal that 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
I can get more women than a passenger train can haul

I'm gonna buy me a pistol just as long as I'm tall
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

And if that's your mama, you better tie her to your side
If that's your mama, better tie her to your side
'Cause if she flags my train I'm sure gonna let her ride

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

I'd rather drink muddy water and sleep in a hollow log
I'd rather drink muddy water and sleep in a hollow log
Than to be in Atlanta, treated like a dirty dog

Well, it's T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Thelma, the gal that made a wreck out of me
