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
