Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Thirty two teeth in a jawbone
Alabama cryin' for none
Before I have to hit him
I hope he's got the sense to run
Verse 2
Reason those poor girls love him
Promise them anything
Reason they believe him
He wears a big diamond ring
Verse 3
Alabama getaway
Alabama getaway
Only way to please me
Turn around and leave
And walk away
Verse 4
Majordomo Billy Bojangles
Sit down and have a drink with me
What's this about Alabama
Keeps comin' back to me?
Verse 5
Heard your plea in the courthouse
Jury box began to rock and rise
Forty-nine sister states all had
Alabama in their eyes
Verse 6
Alabama getaway
Alabama getaway
Only way to please me
Turn around and leave
And walk away
Verse 7
Why don't we just give Alabama
Rope enough to hang himself?
Ain't no call to worry the jury
His kind takes care of itself
Verse 8
Twenty-third Psalm Majordomo
Reserve me a table for three
In the Valley of the Shadow
Just you, Alabama and me
Verse 9
Alabama getaway
Alabama getaway
Only way to please me
Turn around and leave
And walk away
