Artist: Grateful Dead
Albums: Go to Heaven (1980)

32 teeth in a jawbone
Alabama trying for none
Before I have to hit him, I hope he's got the sense to run
Reason the poor girls love him
Promise them everything
Why they all believe him? He wears a big diamond ring

Only way to please me, ya just gotta leave and walk away

Major Domo Billy Bojangles
Sat down and had a drink with me
What's this about Alabama? It keeps a coming back to me
I heard your plea in the courthouse
Witness box began to rock and rise
49 sister states all had Alabama in their eyes

Major said why don't we give him
Rope enough to hang himself?
No need to worry the jury, they'll probably take care of themselves
23rd psalm Major Domo
Reserve me a table for three
Down in the valley of the shadow, just you, Alabama, and me
