Alabama, your beautiful sunlight
Bb F C
Your fields of cerisa, potatos and corn
F Bb F
Alabama, your crimson red clover
Bb F C F
All mingled around the old place I was born

Alabama, your hillls and your valleys
Your creeks sing with laughter as onward they flow
Alabama, so sweet in the springtime
Sweet ferns and wild flowers in winter with snow

Alabama, so sweet to my memory
You shine like a light on the beautiful hill
Alabama, in days of my childhood
I've labored and toiled at the old sorghum mill

Alabama, when red leaves are falling
I've roamed through your pastures with fences of rail
Alabama, when possums are crawling and
And hound dogs are whining and wagging their tails

Alabama, your beautiful highways
Are carved through the mountain where loved ones do wait
Alabama, your goldenrod flowers
And the welcome home sign hanging over the gate

Alabama, to me you are calling
My footsteps are homing no longer to stray
Alabama, you hold all I long for
You hold all I love, so I'm coming today
