My Home’s In Alabama
Recorded by Alabama
Written by Randy Owen and Teddy Gentry

Drinking was forbidden in my Christian country home
C7 F
I learned to play the flattop on them good ol' Gospel songs
A# G7
Then I heard about the barrooms just across the Georgia line
Where a boy could make a living playing guitar late at night

Had to learn about the ladies too young to understand
C7 F
Why the young girls fall in love with the boys in the band
A# G7
When the boys turn to music the girls just turn away
To some other guitar picker in some other late night place

Yeah I held on to my music I let the ladies walk away
C7 F
Took my songs and dreams to Nashville and then I moved on to L.A.
A# G7
Up to New York City all across the USA
I’ve lost so much of me but there's enough of me to say that

F G7 C Gm C
My home's in Alabama no matter where I lay my head
F Em F C
My home's in Alabama southern born and Southern bred

What keeps me going I don't really know
C7 F
Can't be the money the Lord knows I'm always broke
A# G7
Could it be the satisfaction of being understood
When the people really love you and let you know when it's good

Oh I'll speak my Southern English just as natural as I please
C7 F
I'm in the heart of Dixie Dixie's in the heart of me
A# G7
And someday when I make it when love finds a way

Somewhere high on Lookout Mountain
I'll just smile with pride and say that

Repeat #4
