Lyrics [pdf]

D A
Drivin'  home to Alabama I got  turned around in Texas
D
Saw a  fellow at the corner with his thumb out for a ride
D D5 A
When I  stopped for dir ections I could  see he was a rabbit
D G A D
But he  opened up the door and he  hopped  ins ide
D A
  I shoulda taken that  left turn at Albuquerque
D
  Went the wrong way at the fork in the road
D5 A
Been a long, long  day and it's  gotten kinda quirky
D G A D
But I'm  back in 'Bama and I'm  gett ing  towed
D A
When I  stopped to drop the rabbit off  east of Amarillo
D
didn't think that anything could be more absurd
D5 A
But this coyote jumped  aboard and he  waved a stick of dynamite
D A D
  Pointed down the road and said "Follow  that  bird!"
D A
  I shoulda taken that  left turn at Albuquerque
D
  Went the wrong way at the fork in the road
D5 A
Been a long, long  day and it's  gotten kinda quirky
D G A D
But I'm  back in 'Bama and I'm  gett ing  towed
D A
Well, the  dynamite went up and blew us  all the way to Witchita
D
  Coyote hit the highway saying "Thanks for the ride,"
D A
On the  seat he left a packet of  Acme tornado seeds
D G A D
That  grew into a twister with the  truck  ins ide
D A
  I shoulda taken that  left turn at Albuquerque
D
  Went the wrong way at the fork in the road
D5 A
Been a long, long  day and it's  gotten kinda quirky
D G A D
But I'm  back in 'Bama and I'm  gett ing  towed
D A
  The tornado set me down a couple  miles south of Mobile
D
With a  broom through the windshield, upside-down in a ditch
D D5 A
And  when I rolled the  window down to  see where I had landed
D G A D
I was  starin' at the slippers of an  ang ry  witch
D A
  I shoulda taken that  left turn at Albuquerque
D
  Went the wrong way at the fork in the road
D5 A
Been a long, long  day and it's  gotten kinda quirky
D G A D
But I'm  back in 'Bama and I'm  gett ing  toad
D G A D
I'm  back in 'Bama but I'm  now  toad.
(Ribbit!)
