American Ballads and Folk Songs
"Where was you, sister, when de Titanic wen' down?"
"On de back of my ol' gray mule,
Alabama-bound, (2)
Great Godamighty, babe,
Alabama-bound."
* * *
Oh, here I am, rap an' bottled beer, Ef I happen to git drunk an' down, Doncha leave me here, (2) Great Godamighty, babe, Doncha leave me here.
Ef dey don' nab me, 'f o' de sun goes down, I swear to my Almighty God, I'm Alabama-bound, (2) Great Godamighty, babe, I'm Alabama-bound.
I'm Alabama-bound, (2) Ole George is good an' dead, I'm Alabama-bound, (2) Great Godamighty, babe, I'm Alabama-bound.
Doncha leave me here, (2) Ef you leave me, honey babe, Leave me a dime for beer, (2) Great Godamighty, babe, Leave me a dime for beer.
I'm Alabama-bound, (2)
Jus' as sho as de train goes out eas' today,
I'm Alabama-bound, (2)
Great Godamighty, babe,
I'm Alabama-bound.
