Lyrics


Turn it up

Big wheels keep on turning Carry me home to see my kin Singing songs about the south-land I miss 'ole' 'bamy once again And I think it's a sin, yes

Well I heard Mister Young sing about her Well I heard old Neil put her down Well, I hope Neil Young will remember A southern man don't need him around anyhow

Sweet home Alabama Where the skies are so blue Sweet home Alabama Lord, I'm coming home to you

In Birmingham they love the Gov'nor, boo hoo ooo Now we all did what we could do Now Watergate does not bother me Does your conscience bother you? Tell the truth

Sweet home Alabama Where the skies are so blue Sweet home Alabama Lord, I'm coming home to you, here I come Alabama

Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers And they've been known to pick a song or two Lord they get me off so much They pick me up when I'm feeling blue Now how bout you?

Sweet home Alabama Where the skies are so blue Sweet home Alabama Lord, I'm coming home to you

Sweet home Alabama, oh sweet home Where the skies are so blue and the Governor's true Sweet home Alabama Lord, I'm coming home to you, yeah yeh
