The first of the Blue Yodel songs recorded by Jimmie Rodgers.
Pretty easy song, three simple chords, and a repeating progression throughout, yet it 
never gets old to play/sing.

G
T for Texas, T for Tennessee
C                        G
T for Texas, T for Tennessee
        D7                                      G
T for Thelma, That gal that made a wreck out of me
G                D7            G
Yo de lay ee oh, Yo lay ee oh, Yo lay ee

If you don't want me woman, 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
Yo de lay ee oh, Yo lay ee oh, Yo lay ee

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
Yo de lay ee oh, Yo lay ee oh, Yo lay ee

I'm goin' where the water drinks like cherry wine
I'm goin' where the water drinks like cherry wine
Cause this Georgia water, taste like turpentine
Yo de lay ee oh, Yo lay ee oh, Yo lay ee

I'm gonna buy me a shotgun, With a great long shiny barrel
I'm gonna buy me a shotgun, With a big long shiny barrel
I'm gonna shoot that rounder that stole my gal
Yo de lay ee oh, Yo lay ee oh, Yo lay ee

Rather drink muddy water and 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
Yo de lay ee oh, Yo lay ee oh, Yo lay ee
