Well, I [A] went to a turkey roast down the street
The people down there eat like wild geese;
I'm on my [D] way, I'm goin' [G7] back - to Ala-[C] bam'.
[A] Talk about yer people have a whale of a time
Eatin' up chicken' and drinkin' their wine; [Refrain:]
[A] Now some folks say that a tramp won't steal
But I caught three in my corn field; [Refrain:]
[A] One had a bushel and the other had a peck
One had a roast'n' ear tied around his neck; [Refrain:]
[A] There comes Sal walkin' down the street
With the run down shoes tied on her feet;
Good Mornin', [D] honey, stand over there, [G7] baby
Get over there, [C] now.
[A] Hello Sal, I know you
With a run down slipper and a tore up shoe; [Refrain:]
[A] When I get ready to leave this earth
I'm gonna look on my money's worth; [Refrain:]
TAG: I'm goin' [G7] back to Ala-[C] bam'!
