about

This is really just a demo of a song written for a The Year of Alabama Music Songwriting contest that I can't hope to win, but it was a good exercise. It had to be about the state of Alabama or places within the state, and portray them in a positive light.

lyrics

Alabama you've done got me good
You taught me everything
I seen your highways, seen your mountains
But I still got more to view

From Tuscaloosa to Mobile Bay
From Jasper to Troy
You are my homeland and you've got my heart
And I'll be here to stay

Alabama you've done seen some things
From persecution to war
You've overcome and you’ve kept the rhythm
You'll be here forevermore

From Selma to Phenix City
From Birmingham to Montgomery
You are my homeland and you've got my heart
And I'll be here to stay

Alabama you have raised some champions
You've made history too
From football to outer space
And everywhere in between

Alabama
You are my homeland and you've got my heart
And I'll be here to stay
Alabama, I’m here to stay
