They’ve Been Known To Pick A Song Or Two

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: A SONG THAT REFERENCES ANOTHER GROUP IN IT

another group.jpgWell, I found this theme a tough one I must admit! I had to ask Google to help me out. I have picked a song that I believe qualifies as it mentions another group, but they were a group I had not actually heard of. In fact I had to read all about them on Wikipedia, and please feel free to do the same.

Anyway, it is a great tune and so I was more than happy to choose “Sweet Home Alabama” from Lynyrd Skynyrd which mentions Muscle Shoals – The Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section also known as The Swampers.

Have fun – it’s Sunday!!!

Big wheels keep on turning
Carry me home to see my kin
Singing songs about the Southland
I miss Alabamy once again
And I think it’s a sin, yes

Well I heard mister Young sing about her
Well, I heard ole Neil put her down
Well, I hope Neil Young will remember
A Southern man don’t need him around anyhow

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

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

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

Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
And they’ve been known to pick a song or two
Lord they get me off so much
They pick me up when I’m feeling blue
Now how about you?

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 guv’nor’s true
Sweet Home Alabama
Lordy
Lord, I’m coming home to you
Yea, yea Montgomery’s got the answer
