    My Home's In Alabama

    Drinkin' was forbidden
    In my Christian country home
    I learned to play the flattop
    On them good ol' Gospel songs
    Then I heard about the barrooms
    Just across the Georgia line
    Where a boy could make a livin'
    Playin' guitar late at night.

    Had to learn about the ladies;
    Too young to understand
    Why the young girls fall in love
    With the boys in the band
    When the boys turn to music,
    The girls just turn away
    To some other guitar picker
    In some other late night place.

    Yeah, I held on to my music;
    I let the ladies walk away
    Took my songs and dreams to Nashville
    Then I moved on to L.A.
    Up to New York City,
    All across the USA
    I lost so much of me
    But there's enough of me to say, that my..

    Home's in Alabama,
    No matter where I lay my head
    My home's in Alabama,
    Southern born and Southern bred.

    What keeps me goin'
    I don't really know
    Can't be the money
    Lord knows I'm always broke
    Could it be the satisfaction
    Of bein' understood
    When the people really love ya
    And let you know when it's good

    Oh I'll speak my Southern English
    Just as natural as I please
    I'm in the heart of Dixie,
    Dixie's in the heart of me
    And someday when I make it,
    When love finds a way
    Somewhere high on Lookout Mountain
    I'll just smile with pride and say, that my

    Home's in Alabama,
    No matter where I lay my head
    My home's in Alabama,
    Southern born and southern bred
    Southern born and southern bred
    Southern born and southern bred

    And my home's in Alabama,
    No matter where I lay my head
    My home's in Alabama,
    Southern born and southern bred
    Southern born and southern bred
    Southern born and southern bred...
