                ALABAMA BOUND - Leadbelly w/the Golden Quartert 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Jack Gooding

Email: j.gooding@student.liverpool.ac.uk

Tuning: Standard

The first part of the original tab was accurate, but I think the rest needed revision:


     I'm   Al- a- ba- ma- bound         (I'm   Al- a- ba- ma- bound)

Lyrics:

I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)
I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)
And if the train don't stop and turn around
I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)

Don't ya leave me here (Now don't ya leave me here)
Don't ya leave me here (Now don't ya leave me here)
And if you will go anyhow
Give me a dime for bail (Give me a dime for bail)

I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)
I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)
And if the train don't stop and turn around
I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)

You ought-a be like me (You ought-a be like me)
You ought-a be like me (You ought-a be like me)
----incomprehensible----
and let that King gone be

I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)
I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)
And if the train don't stop and turn around
I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)

The preachers in the stand (The preachers in the stand)
Pass his hand around (Pass his hand around)
Singing brothers and sisters shoot your money to me
I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)

I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)
I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)
And if the train don't stop and turn around
I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)

Oh that preacher preach (Oh that preacher preach)
Ssisters they turned around (Sisters they turned around)
Yes n' the deacons' in the corner holler sweet gal
I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)

I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)
I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)
And if the train don't stop and turn around
I'm Alabama bound (I'm Albama bound)
