I've got my pistols in my pockets boys
I've got my pistols in my pockets boys, I'm
Well, I'm not looking for no trouble

Tri-cities here I come
Tri-cities here I come
And I know that woman give me some
When the kid hits Alabama, people
When the kid hits Alabama, people
'Cause if you people cause me trouble

And I don't take any stuff from you
And I don't take any stuff from you
Boy, its got to make it black and blue
Well, I'm goin' to Alabama
Well, I'm ridin' to Alabama
'Cause down in Alabama you can run
