I'm Alabama Bound-Papa Charlie Jackson
Papa Charlie, G position, standard tuning, unidentified tenor banjoist

Stood on the corner, feet got soaking wet
I was hollerin' and cryin' to every brownskin gal I met

I'm Alabama bound, Alabama bound
Sayin', if you wants me to love you, babe, you've got to leave this town

Then the rooster crowed, the hen looked around
Said, "If you wants me to love you, babe, you've got to run me down."

Look here, pretty mama, who can your reg'lar be?
Say, the reason I was askin' now, darling babe, 'cause you been good to me

There's the preacher in the pulpit, Bible in his hand
And the sisters 'way back in the amen corner hollerin', "That's my man."

I'm Alabama bound, Alabama bound
Sayin' if you wants me to love you, babe, you've got to leave this town

SOLO

Now the boat's up the river and she's loaded down
When she heads on southbound, darling babe, she's Alabama bound

Just like a big steak, beefsteak, ain't got no bone
Sayin' if a man don't like a good brownskin woman nowadays, he ain't got no home

I'm Alabama bound, Alabama bound
Sayin' if you wants me to love you, babe, you've got to leave the town

Elder Green's in town, and he's going around
And he's telling all the sister and the brothers he meets, he's Alabama bound

Now don't you leave me here, don't you leave me here
Just before you and your partner gets ready to go, leave a dime for beer

SOLO X 2
