Alabam:Cowboy Copas.
This was #1 one on the Country charts but 
crossed over to the Rock charts at #63 in 1960.
(He was killed in the same plane crash as Patsy Cline
 and Hawkshaw Hawkins in 1963.)

#1.
A       
Well, I went to a turkey roast down the street,

people down there eatin' like wild geese..
          D               G        C
I’m on my way...I’m going back..To Alabam.

#2.
A
Talk about the people having a whale of a time,

eatin' up the chicken and drinkin' their wine.
          D               G        C
I’m on my way...I’m going back..To Alabam.

#3.
A
Now, some folks say that a tramp won’t steal,

But I caught three in my cornfield.
          D               G        C
I’m on my way...I’m going back..To Alabam.

#4.
A
One had a bushel, the other had a peck,

One had a roastin' ear tied around his neck.
          D               G        C
I’m on my way...I’m going back..To Alabam.

#5.
A
Here comes Sal walking down the street,

with the run down shoes tied on her feet.
     D                     G
Good morning, Honey..stand over there, baby. 
    C
Get over there, now.

#6.
A
Hello Sal, I know you..

with the run down slipper and the tore up shoe.
          D               G        C
I’m on my way...I’m going back..To Alabam.

#7.
A
When I get ready to leave this Earth,

I’m gonna look back on my money’s worth.
          D               G        C
I’m on my way...I’m going back..To Alabam.
               G             C
Yes, I’m going back..to Ala..bam.


A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
