Song of the South
Alabama Lyrics


Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again

Cotton on the roadside, cotton in the ditch
We all picked the cotton but we never got rich
Daddy was a veteran, a southern democrat
They oughta get a rich man to vote like that

Sing it

Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again

Well somebody told us Wall Street fell
But we were so poor that we couldn't tell
Cotton was short and the weeds were tall
But Mr. Roosevelt's a gonna save us all

Well momma got sick and daddy got down
The county got the farm and they moved to town
Pappa got a job with the TVA
He bought a washing machine and then a Chevrolet

Sing it

Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again

Play it

Sing it

Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again

Song, song of the south

Gone, gone with the wind

Song, song of the south.
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth.
Song, song of the south.
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth.

Sing it

Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again

Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again

I grew up in a Northern upper middle class family that looked down on people from the South with those accents . As I entered the working world , I got to know many of these Southerners that had migrated North to work the mills , refinerys , etc to make a better life for their families . I found these folks to be some of the most hard working , honest people that I've had the pleasure to meet . Funny thing is , now I feel I have more in common with them than my Yankee family .

I'm a son of the South, age 71. I love this song as some of my relatives experienced the hardships as shown in the video. They survived! Part of the greatest generation... nothing but pride in my heart for them.

They love a president who took their property and gave them a slave labor job just so that they could survive and feed their family
