32 teeth in a jawbone, Alabama trying for none,
E                             D                            C C A
Before I have to hit him, I hope he's got the sense to run.

Reason the poor girls love him, promise them everything,
E                             D                        C C A
Why they all believe him? He wears a big diamond ring.

Alabama getaway, getaway. Alabama getaway, getaway,
E                       D                                       C C A 2x
Only way to please me, just turn 'round and leave and walk away.

Major Domo Billy Bojangles, sat down and had a drink with me,
            E                  D                        C C A
Said "What about Alabama? It keeps a coming back to me.
A                                
Heard your plea in the courthouse, Witness box began to rock and rise,
E                       D                   C C A
49 sister states had Alabama in their eyes.

Alabama getaway, getaway. Alabama getaway, getaway,
E                       D                                       C C A 2x

Major said why don't we give him rope enough to hang himself?
             E                       D                              C C A
No need to worry the jury, they'll probably take care of themselves.

23rd psalm Major Domo, reserve me a table for three,

Down in the valley of the shadow, just you, Alabama, and me.
