             [Intro]
Am7  D  Am7  D  Am7  D  Am7  D

[Verse 1]
D                           Dmaj7
Drinking was forbidden in my Christian country home
 D7                                  G
I learned to play the flattop on them good old Gospel songs
      C                              A
Then I heard about the bar rooms just across the Georgia line
       A7                              D
Where a boy could make a living playing guitar late at night

[Verse 2]
      D                           Dmaj7
Had to learn about the ladies, too young to understand
       D7                                G
Why the young girls fall in love with the boys in the band
        C                       A
When the boys turn to music, the girls just turn away
       A7                          D
To some other guitar picker in some other late night place

[Verse 3]
     D                              Dmaj7
Yeah, held on to my music, I let the ladies walk away
       D7                                   G
Took my songs and dreams to Nashville then I moved on to L.A
C                        A
Up to New York City all across the USA
 A7                               D
I lost so much of me but there's enough of me to say

[Chorus]
       G      A7     D              Am7            D
That my home's in Alabama, no matter where I lay my head
  G             F#m           G                 D     Am7  D  Am7  D
My home's in Alabama, Southern born and Southern bred

[Verse 4]
D                  Dmaj7
What keeps me going I don't really know
D7                     G
Can't be the money Lord knows I'm always broke
        C                      A
Could it be the satisfaction of being understood
        A7                                 D
When the people really love you and let you know when it's good

[Verse 5]
       D                                 Dmaj7
Oh I'll speak my Southern English just as natural as I please
   D7                             G
I'm in the heart of Dixie, Dixie's in the heart of me
   C                            A
And someday when I make it, when love finds a way
         A7                                 D
Somewhere high on Lookout Mountain I'll just smile with pride and say

[Chorus]
       G      A7     D              Am7            D
That my home's in Alabama, no matter where I lay my head
  G             F#m           G                 D
My home's in Alabama, Southern born and Southern bred
        Am7               D              Am7               D
Southern born and Southern bred, Southern born and Southern bred

[Outro]
Am7  D  Am7  D  Am7  D  Am7  D
