Everly Brothers, The - T For Texas (Blue Yodel No. 1) Lyrics




Oh, T for Texas, T for Tennessee (T for Texas, T for Tennessee)
Oh, T for Texas, T for Tennessee (T for Texas, T for Tennessee)
Oh, T for Thelma (T For Thelma)
That gal done made a wreck out of me

If you don't want me mama you sure don't have to call (T for Texas, T for Tennessee)
If you don't want me mama you sure don't have to call (T for Texas, T for Tennessee)
I can get more women (Get more women)
Than a passenger train can haul

I'm going where the water drinks like cherry wine
I'm going where the water drinks like cherry wine
'Cause this Georgia water tastes like turpentine

Oh, T for Texas, T for Tennessee (T for Texas, T for Tennessee)
Oh, T for Texas, T for Tennessee (T for Texas, T for Tennessee)
Oh, T for Thelma (T For Thelma)
That gal done made a wreck out of me

I'm gonna buy me a pistol just because I'm tall (T for Texas, T for Tennessee)
I'm gonna buy me a pistol just because I'm tall (T for Texas, T for Tennessee)
I'm gonna shoot poor Thelma (Shoot poor Thelma)
Just to see her run and jump and fall

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

Oh, T for Texas, T for Tennessee (T for Texas, T for Tennessee)
Oh, T for Texas, T for Tennessee (T for Texas, T for Tennessee)
Oh, T for Thelma (T For Thelma)
That gal done made a wreck out of me
