Alabama Getaway

Jerry Garcia, Robert Hunter


19 Apr 1996
cd imgTHE MAINE EVENT (T-508)

  Live, Portland ME - 19.apr.1996  

32 teeth in a jawbone, Alabama crying for none,
Before I have to hit him, I hope he's got the sense to run.
Reason the poor girls love him, promise them everything,
Why they all believe him? He wears a big diamond ring.

Alabama getaway, getaway. 
Alabama getaway, getaway,
Only way to please me
Ya just gotta leave and walk away.

Majordomo Billy Bojangles, sit down and have a drink with me,
"What's this about Alabama? It keeps a coming back to me.
Heard your plea in the courthouse, witness box began to rock and rise,
49 sister states all had Alabama in there eyes.

Alabama getaway, getaway. 
Alabama getaway, getaway,
Only way to please me
Ya just gotta leave and walk away.

Major said why don't we give him rope enough to hang himself?
No need to worry the jury, this kind takes care of themselves.
23rd psalm Majordomo, reserve me a table for three,
Down in the valley of the shadow, you, Alabama, and me.

Alabama getaway, getaway. 
Alabama getaway, getaway,
Only way to please me
Just gotta leave and walk away.
Alabama getaway, getaway. 
Alabama getaway, getaway,
Only way to please me, just gotta leave and walk away.  up
