  • I've got my pistols in my pockets boys
    I'm Alabama bound
    I've got my pistols in my pockets boys, I'm
    I'm Alabama bound
    Well, I'm not looking for no trouble
    But nobody dogs me 'round

    Well, I'm going to fetch my woman, people
    Tri-cities here I come
    Well, I'm going to fetch my woman, people
    Tri-cities here I come
    'Cause she was raised up on that cornbread
    And I know that woman give me some

    When the kid hits Alabama, people
    Don't you try to dog him 'round
    When the kid hits Alabama, people
    Don't you try to dog him 'round
    'Cause if you people cause me trouble
    Lord, I got to put you in the ground

    Well, I was born in Mississippi
    And I don't take any stuff from you
    Well, I was born in Mississippi
    And I don't take any stuff from you
    And if I hit you on your head
    Boy, its got to make it black and blue

    Well, I'm goin' to Alabama
    Got my pistols out by my side
    Well, I'm ridin' to Alabama
    With my pistols out by my side
    'Cause down in Alabama you can run
    But you sure can't hide
