  • She'd rather wear a pair of cut-off jeans
    Than a fancy evening dress
    And with her windows rolled down
    And her hair all blown around
    She's a hot southern mess

    She'll take a beer over white wine
    A campfire over candle light
    And when it comes to love
    Oh her idea of, a romantic night

    Listenin' to old Alabama, drivin' through Tennessee
    A little dixieland delight at the right time of the night
    And she can't keep her hands off of mee!

    And now we're rollin' down an old back road
    I got the steering wheel in one hand
    We'll find a hideaway where she and I can play
    In mother nature's band

    Now we're listenin' to old Alabama
    Parked somewhere in Tennessee
    A little dixieland delight and it feels so right
    And it's love in the first degree ee ee!

    Forget about Sinatra or Coltrane,
    Or some ol' righteous brothers song
    And Barry White ain't gonna work tonight
    If you really wanna turn her on
    Play some back home come on music
    That comes from the heart
    Play something with lots of feeling
    'cause that's where music has to start

    Now we're listenin' to old Alabama
    And we're drivin' through Tennessee
    A little dixieland delight and it feels so right
    And its love in the first degree

    Yeah' you know we're listenin' to old Alabama (old Alabama)
    Drivin' through Tennessee (Tennessee)
    A little why lady why at the right time of the night
    Oh and she can't keep her hands off of mee

    Oh, play me some old Alabama
    Oh, play me some old Alabama
    Won't you play me some old Alabama
    Oh pla ee ay ay, yee haw!

    So the one you loved just left you for another
    And your down
    Or you lost your job and you need a drink
    You look around and start to think
    That no one understands what you been through Writer/s: BRAD PAISLEY, CHRIS DUBOIS, DAVE TURNBULL, RANDY OWEN

  • K.c. from NhAlthough this song is listed in the category "songs with US states in the title", the "Alabama" in the title is actually the country band Alabama, who cameo in the song & video. However, the band Alabama DID borrow their name from the state.
