Born Country


Performed by: ALABAMA (1991)

Written by:  Byron Hill & John Schweers


Clear creeks

and cool mountain mornin's.

Honest work out in the fields.

Cornbread in my momma's kitchen.
Daddy saying grace before the meal.

Family ties run deep in this land.
And I'm never very far from what I am.

I was born country and that's what I'll always be.

Like the rivers and the woodlands wild and free.

I got a hundred years of down home running through my blood.

I was born country and this country's what I love.


Moonlight and you here beside me.

Crickets serenadin' in the yard.

What more could two people ask for.

Laying here in love beneath the stars.

Now this is where I wanna raise my kids.

Just the way my mom and daddy did.

  2. love that creek, hope it will never become polluted.

  3. Oh my goodness you have outdone yourself today. Alabama is my absolute favorite country group!!!
    Your pictures are perfect!!!
    The couple embracing by the car remind me of one of my favorite scenes in Dirty Dancing...Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey are in the same position.
    Well done,
    Mad and Mom

  4. Wow, lots of thought and work went into this one. I like the way the words and pictures go together.
