My Homes In Alabama  Alabama

[D]Drinkin' was forbidden in my [Dmaj7]Christian country home
I [D7]learned to play the flattop on them [G]good ol' Gospel songs
Then I [C]heard about the barrooms just a[A7]cross the Georgia line
Where a [A7]boy could make a livin' playin' [D]guitar late at night

[D]Had to learn about the ladies; too [Dmaj7]young to understand
why the yo[D7]ung girls fall in love with the[G] boys in the band
When the [C]boys turn to music, the [A7]girls just turn away
to some other guitar picker in some [D]other late night place
[D]Yeah, I held on to my music; I let the [Dmaj7]ladies walk away
took my so[D7]ngs and dreams to Nashville and then I [G]moved on to L.A.
U[C]p to New York City, all ac[A7]ross the USA
I lost so much of me but there's [D]enough of me to say (that my)
.[G]-.Home's -[A]in Ala[D]bama, no matter [Am7]where I lay my [D]head
My [G]home[A]'s in Ala[F#m]bama,[D7] Southern [G]born [A]and Southern [D]bred

[D]   [Am7]     [D]   [Am7]     [D]

[D7]can't be the money the Lord [G]knows I'm always broke
could it[C] be the satisfaction of [A7]bein' understood
when the people really love you and let you [D]know when it's good

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

Repeat Chorus:

Southern [G]born and Southern [D]bred
Southern [G]born and Southern [D]bred
Southern [Am7]born and Southern [D]bred
