Music Monday: Lynyrd Skynyrd – Sweet Home Alabama

musicmonday

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

Lynyrd Skynyrd – Sweet Home Alabama

Going with a classic this week as my family and I are still staying home trying to avoid the virus. With record numbers of new cases daily here in the US it’s starting to feel like things will never be “normal” again but thankfully there’s still plenty of music out there to help bring a little cheer.

Lyrics:

Big wheels keep on turning
Carry me home to see my kin
Singing songs about the Southland
I miss Alabamy once again and I think it’s a sin, yes
Well, I heard Mister Young sing about her (southern man)
Well, I heard ol’ Neil put her down
Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
A southern man don’t need him around, anyhow
Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama
Lord, I’m coming home to you
In Birmingham they love the Governor, boo, boo, boo
Now we all did what we could do
Now Watergate does not bother me
Does your conscience bother you? Tell the truth
Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama
Lord, I’m coming home to you, here I come Alabama
Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
And they’ve been known to pick a song or two (yes they do)
Lord, they get me off so much
They pick me up when I’m feeling blue, now how ’bout you?
Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama
Lord, I’m coming home to you
Sweet home Alabama, oh, sweet home, baby
Where the skies are so blue and the governor’s true
Sweet home Alabama, Lordy
Lord, I’m coming home to you, yeah yeah
My, Montgomery’s got the answer
