"Alabamy Bound" by Ray Henderson, Bud DeSylva, & Bud Green Verse: Em C7 Em Goodbye, blues Am B7 Am B7 Em Birdies are singin' ev'ry old thing in tune C7 Em Goodbye, blues Am B7 Am B7 Em Nothin' but laughter mornin' and afternoon D7 G Saw a rosebud in a store D7 C B7 So I'm goin' where there's more Em C7 Em Goodbye, blues! Am B7 Am B7 Em Troubles are over I'll be in clover soon Chorus: Gm I'm Alabamy bound A7 There'll be no "Heebie Jeebies" hangin' round, D7 Em A7 Just gave the meanest ticket man on earth all I'm worth D7 To put my tootsies in an upper berth Em Gm Just hear that choo choo sound A7 I know that soon we're goin' to cover ground G G7 E7 A7 And then I'll holler so the world will know "Here I go" C D7 C D7 G I'm Al-a-bamy bound Chorus Patter: I can hear that choo choo whistle blow, Watch that engine when we start to go, Now we're in Baltimore Knockin' at Dixie's door What's that, Bill? Louisville We passed that before Fields o' cotton tell me where I am Hear that feller yellin "Alabam" Mammy, Mammy, Get your kisses ready for yo' honey lamb End: Gm I'm just a lucky hound A7 To have someone to put my arms around G G7 E7 A7 That's why I'm shoutin' for the world to know "Here I go!" C D7 C D7 G I'm Al-a-bamy bound
