Alabama the Beautiful

Alabama the beautiful
Place where I grew
Where small towns never change
and everyone seems to wave at you

Where everyones personal buisness
is pretty much always your own
Too your favorite local drunk
On the corner singing Old songs

Where the creeks are always cold
and your friends are never far
Your only means of entertainment?
of course is the local bar

Alabama the beautiful
The home in which I choose
Too live at peace and in beauty
An offer I just can't refuse

"This here is God's country"
Some people  might would say
If you want to see the edge of heaven
Just come on down our way

Alabama the beautiful
My Home where I grew
where I grew to be a man
A country boy through and through

    Cody, I have to agree with you. Alabama is a beautiful place and the people are wonderful too. Spent a lot of time in Mobile but like the small towns better. Excellent Write. Always, Will

    Sweet Home Alabama, this is beautiful, Cody. You describe very well all of the things that make small southern towns such wonderful places to live. I especially like: "Where the creeks are always cold and your friends are never far." People here in the South certainly do seem to stick together. Great write! Love, Carolyn
