Yes I love, love that girl.

Tell the world I do.

(Guitar solo)

Yes I went down to the river.
Started to jump overboard an drown.
Got to thinkin’, now-now.
‘Bout Alberta, God knows I turned.
I turned sho’ ’round.
I turned sho’ ’round.
I turned sho’.
I turned sho’ around.
I turned sho’.

(Guitar solo)

Yes I know, know Alberta.
Lord, I know ’bout her, way she walk.
She got three-ee-ee, three gold teeth, oh Lord.
Dimples in her jaw.
Dimples in her jaw.
Dimples in.
Dimples in her.
Dimples in.

Oh Lord, her dimples in her jaw.
