  DYLAN/CASH recording session, Nashville TN - 18.feb.1969  

I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep in a holler log
I'd rather drink muddy water
Sleep in a holler log
Than to stay in Atlanta
Treated like a dirty dog.

Well it's T for Texas
T for Tennessee
T for Texas
T for Tennessee
T for Thelma the girl
That made a fool out of me.

Well I went to the depot
Looked up on the board
Well I went to the depot
Looked up on the board
He says there's good times here
Better down the road.

It's rainin' here
Stormin' on a deep blue sea
It's rainin' here
Stormin' on a deep blue sea
I wish that a tornado
Would blow you back to me.

Well it's T for Thelma
T for Tennessee
Yeah it's T for Thelma
T for Tennessee
And it's T for Texas, the state
That made a fool/wreck out of me.

If your house catches fire
And there ain't no water 'round
If your house catches fire
And there ain't no water 'round
Throw my suitcase out the window
Let the house burn on down.  up
