T For Texas
T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Texas, T for Tennessee
And it's T for Thelma
She made a wreck of me

O-de-lay-ee-hoo
O-de-lay-ee-hoo

I don't miss you Thelma
No I don't miss you at all
I don't miss you Thelma
I don't miss you at all
'Cause I got more women
Than a passenger train can haul

O-de-lay-ee-hoo
O-de-lay-ee-hoo

She's long, she's tall
She's six feet from the ground
Long and tall
Six feet from the ground
She's tailor made
She ain't no hand-me-down

O-de-lay-ee-a-lay-ee-o-ly-ee

Oh, make that rooster
Crow at the brake of day
Hey, make that rooster
Crow at the brake of day
To let the little dog know
That the big dog's on his way

O-de-lay-ee-hoo
O-de-lay-ee-hoo

I'm gonna buy me a shotgun
Just as long as I'm tall
Buy me a shotgun
Long as I'm tall
I'm gonna shoot old Thelma
Just to see her jump and fall

O-de-lay-ee-hoo
O-de-lay-ee-hoo
