H = hammer on
T for Texas, T for Tennessee
T for Thelma, that gal that made a wreck out of me.

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.
I'm gonna buy me a pistol just as long as I am tall
I'm gonna shoot poor Thelma, just to see her jump and fall.
Well, 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.

I'm gonna buy me a shotgun with a long shiny barrel
I'm gonna shoot that rounder that stole away my gal.
I'd rather drink muddy water and sleep in a hollow log
Than to be here in Atlanta, and get treated like a dirty dog
