The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Alabama Bound

Well the preacher got drunk
He throwed his Bible 4 down
He told the congre- 5 gation
I'm Alabama 1 bound

I'm Alabama bound
I'm Alabama 4 bound
If the train don't 5 run
I've got a mule to 1 ride

Well I've been in New York City
And I've been in New York town
Good Lord I've been in the mountains
With the blues all around

Well I jumped in the river
And I started to drown
I spied a red headed woman
Good Lord I couldn't go down
