      I’m Alabamy bound

      There’ll be no heebie jeebies hangin’ ‘round

      Just gave the meanest ticket man on earth … all I’m worth 

      To put my tootsies in an upper berth.

 

      Just hear that choo-choo sound

      It means that pretty soon we’ll cover ground

      And then I’ll holler so the world will know

      Here I go …

 

      I’m Alabamy bound …

 

      I’m Alabamy bound

      There’ll be no heebie jeebies hangin’ ‘round

      Just gave the meanest ticket man on earth … every cent I’m worth

      To up my eight and a halves in an upper berth.

 

      Just hear that choo-choo sound

      I know that pretty soon we’ll cover ground

      And then I’ll holler so the world will know

      Here I go …

 

      I’m Alabamy bound …
