On his 1970 album After the Gold Rush, Neil Young wrote a song called “Southern Man,” which described the racism in the South as he saw it after visiting there.

I saw cotton
And I saw black
Tall white mansions
And little shacks
Southern man
When will you
Pay them back?

Lynyrd Skynyrd wrote “Sweet Home Alabama” as a response to “Southern Man” and as a way to show rock fans that the South was not the racist land of protracted slavery that Canadians at the time felt that it was. People often believe Lynyrd Skynyrd to be typical, Southern Conservatives because of where they come from, but let’s keep in mind here that these guys named their band after a gym teacher who thought they were flowery hippies who needed to cut their hair.

In his 2012 biography Waging Heavy Peace, Young finally recanted “Southern Man,” a full thirty-five years after LS frontman Ronnie Vant Zant’s death.

I don’t like my words when I listen to it. They are accusatory and condescending, not fully thought out, and too easy to misconstrue.

The song is a staple of the Classic Rock and AOR radio formats and something of an anthem for the state and its various sports teams, even making its way onto a recent Alabama license plate design!

[Intro]
One, two, three
Turn it up

[Verse 1]
Big wheels keep on turnin’
Carry me home to see my kin
Singin’ songs about the southland
I miss Alabamy once again
And I think it’s a sin, yes

[Verse 2]
Well I heard Mr 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

[Chorus]
Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama
Lord, I’m coming home to you

[Verse 3]
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

[Chorus]
Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama
Lord, I’m coming home to you
Here I come, Alabama

[Guitar solo]

[Bridge]
(Ah-ah-ah, Alabama
Ah-ah-ah, Alabama
Ah-ah-ah, Alabama
Ah-ah-ah, Alabama)

[Verse 4]
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?

[Chorus]
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)

[Outro]
Mont… Montgomery’s got the answer
