Lyrics WELL, I WENT TO A TURKEY ROAST
DOWN THE STREET,
THE PEOPLE DOWN THERE
EATING LIKE WILD GEESE,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

TALK ABOUT YOUR PEOPLE
HAVIN' WHALE OF A TIME,
EATIN' UP THE CHICKEN
AND DRINKIN' THEIR WINE,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

NOW SOME FOLKS SAY
THAT A TRAMP WON'T STEAL,
BUT I CAUGHT THREE
IN MY CORNFIELD,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

ONE HAD A BUSHEL,
THE OTHER HAD A PECK,
ONE HAD A ROASTED EAR
TIED AROUND HIS NECK,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

THERE COMES SAL
WALKIN' DOWN THE STREET,
WITH THE RUNDOWN SHOES
TIED ON HER FEET,
GOOD MORNING, HONEY,
STAND OVER THERE, BABY,
GET OVER THERE NOW.

HELLO, SAL,
NOW, I KNOW YOU,
WITH THE RUNDOWN SLIPPER
AN' A TORE UP SHOE,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

WHEN I GET READY
TO LEAVE THIS EARTH,
I'M GONNA LOOK BACK
ON MY MONEY'S WORTH,
I'M ON MY WAY,
I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

I'M GOIN' BACK
TO ALABAM.

Lyrics SIGNED, SEALED AND DELIVERED,
A PACKAGE CONTAINING MY HEART.
TO OPEN,
REMOVE THE WRAPPER,
BUT PLEASE DON'T TEAR IT APART.
YOU TORE OUT THIS HEART
WHEN YOU LEFT ME
YOU LEFT ME ALONE
AND SO BLUE.
I'M SENDING IT SPECIAL DELIVERY
PLEASE HANDLE WITH CARE,
IT'S FOR YOU.

IT'S ALL THAT I HAVE TO OFFER,
BUT DARLIN',
YOU KNOW THAT IT'S TRUE.
SIGNED, SEALED AND DELIVERED,
THE POSTMAN WILL BRING IT TO YOU.
I THOUGHT
PERHAPS YOU WOULD KEEP IT
JUST FOR A WHILE,
DON'T YOU SEE.
OH DARLIN',
PLEASE KEEP IT FOREVER
WITHOUT YOU
IT'S NO GOOD TO ME.

SIGNED, SEALED AND DELIVERED,
A PACKAGE CONTAINING MY HEART.
I SEND IT TO YOU AS A TOKEN
I'M SORRY WE'RE SO FAR APART.
