Blue Yodel (T For Texas) Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
T for Texas, T for Tennesee
T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Thelma
That gal made a wreck out of me.
Verse 2
[Yodel]: O-de-lay-ee-a-lay-ee-o-ly-ee
Verse 3
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.
Verse 4
[Yodel]:
Verse 5
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.
Verse 6
[Yodel]:
Verse 7
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.
Verse 8
[Yodel]:
Verse 9
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.
