T Is For Texas Lyrics

Artist: Johnny Cash
Album: Unearthed

T for texas, T for Tennessee
T for texas, T for Tennessee
T for Thelma, woman made a fool out of me

If you don't want me baby, mama you sure don't got to stall
If you don't want me baby, mama you sure don't got to stall
I can get more women than a passenger train could haul

I'm gonna buy myself a pistol just as long as I'm tall
I'm gonna buy myself a pistol just as long as I'm tall
I'm gonna shoot poor phelma 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, you better tie her to your side
Cause if she flags my train I'm sure gonna let her ride

I'm gonna buy myself a shotgun, with a great long shiny barrel
I'm gonna buy myself a shotgun, with a great long shiny barrel
I'm gonna shoot me a rounder oh 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 hog

Well it's T for texas, T for Tennessee
T for texas, T for Tennessee
T for Thelma, the girl who made a wreck out of me
