Alabama Clay Recorded by Garth Brooks Written by Ronny Scaife and Larry Cordle
C G7 Am C First time he saw the ground get busted F C G7 He was ten and it was 1952 C G7 Am C His daddy worked hard from sunup to sundown F G7 And the goin' got tough behind them ol' grey mules
C G7 Am C The farm grew to be a moneymaker F C G7 And the house he lived in grew up room by room C G7 Am C The boy worked hard but soon got tired of farmin' D7 G7 C So he slipped away one night neath the harvest moon
F C His neck was red as Alabama clay F C G7 But the city's c-all pulled him away F C He's got a factory job and runs a big machine G7 C G7 He don't miss the farm or the fields of green
C G7 Am C Now the city's just a prison without fences F C G7 His job is just a routine he can't stand C G7 Am C And at night he dreams of wide open spaces F G7 Fresh dirt between his toes and on his hands
C G7 Am C Then one day a picture came inside a letter F C G7 Of a young girl with a baby in her arms C G7 Am G7 And the words she wrote will change his life forever D7 G7 C So he went to raise his family on the farm
F C His neck is red as Alabama clay F C G7 Now he's goin' h-ome this time to stay F C Where the roots run deep on the family tree G7 C And the tractor rolls through the fields of green
repeat last verse
F C His neck is red as Alabama clay
