I grew up on Merle Haggard, ZZ Top and CDB And if that Freebird wasn't soarin' Y'all would have never heard of me Turn up Bocephus on the radio Marshall Tucker now can't you see You can take me out the country But you'll never take the country out of me Can't go a day without Waylon Jennings And the red haired stranger's on my mind Johnny Cash and Jimmy Rogers JJ Cale and Old John Prine My Sweet Melissa keeps on callin' Take a load off Annalee I ain't never been to Heaven But I hear it's just the same as Tennessee Now my face might seem familiar You see me smiling on T.V. They might take me out to L.A. But they'll never take sweet Dixieland from me They might take me out the country But they'll never take the country out of me If you didn't know that I was country Alabama's always home to me

Jimi Hendrix opened for The Monkees on their 1967 tour, and it did not go well. The young, mostly female crowd shouted "Davy" when Hendrix sang the word "Lady" in "Foxy Lady" in honor of who they came to see: Monkees lead singer Davy Jones.
