Alabama – Down Home

[CHORUS]
Down home
Gathered round on a checkered board
Way down home
Kids drivin’ round the old town square

Down Home
Those of us raised up
A mans good word and a hand shake are all you need
Things move at a slower pace
Down Home
Down Home
Old men telling lies and crownin’ kings
If there fallin’ on hard times they can fall back home
If they’re fallin’ on hard times they can fall back home
Go and see what’s shakin’ at the Dairy Queen
A little dot on the state road map
And these days that’s a special way of life
In the corner of the hardware store
Folks know
Down Home
Down Home

A mans good word and a hand shake are all you need
Down Home

If they’re fallin’ on hard times they can fall back home
Those of us raised up

Where they know you by name and treat you like family
Where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down Home
A mans good word and a handshake are all you need

Down Home
That’s where I was born and where I’ll die

Way down home
Nobody’s in a rat race
Folks know
[CHORUS]
Just off of the beaten path
Folks know
Cops roll down int he cool night air
Down Home
Folks know
Those of us raised up down home

Where they know you by name and treat you like family
Those of us raised up down home

When I was a boy I couldn’t wait to leave this place
But now I wanna see my children raised
Down Home
If they’re fallin’ on hard times they can fall back home
Down Home
