Alabama




Alabama
The devil fools with the best laid plan
Swing low Alabama
You got the spare change
You got to feel strange
And now the moment
is all that it meant

Alabama, you got the weight on your shoulders that's breaking your back
Your Cadillac has got a wheel in the ditch and a wheel on the track

Alabama
Banjos playing through the broken glass
Windows down in Alabama
See the old folks
tied in white ropes
Hear the banjo
Don't it take you down home?

Alabama, you got the weight on your shoulders that's breaking your back.
Your Cadillac has got a wheel in the ditch and a wheel on the track

Alabama
Can I see you and shake your hand?
Make friends down in Alabama
I'm from a new land
I come to you and
See all this ruin
What are you doing 
Alabama?
You got the rest of the union to help you along
What's going wrong?
