VP_010983 Verse 1Good-bye, blues Birdies are singin' ev'ry old thing in tune Good-bye, blues Nothin' but laughter mornin' and afternoon Saw a rosebud in a store So I'm goin' where there's more Good-bye, blues Troubles are over I'll be in clover soon: Chorus 1I'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 I know that soon we're goin' to cover ground And then I'll holler so the world will know "Here I go" I'm Alabamy Bound. Verse 2Hello, joy Never knew I would, never knew I could smile Hello, joy Tho' I've been tearful I see each cheerful mile I've been dreamin' dreams each day Of that sunshine far away Hello, joy No one's been sadder Now I'll be glad awhile: Chorus 2I'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 I'm just a lucky hound To have someone to put my arms around That's why I'm shoutin' for the world to know "Here I go" I'm Alabamy Bound.
