Activity

Listen to the song and complete the lyrics


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

Well I heard Mister Young sing about her
Well I heard old Neil put her
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

In Birmingham they love the Governor
Now we all did what we could do
Now Watergate does not bother me
Does your conscience bother you?


Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama
Lord, I'm , 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
Now how bout you?

Sweet home Alabama
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet home Alabama
Lord, I'm

Sweet home Alabama, oh sweet home
Where the skies are so blue and the Governor's true
Sweet home Alabama
Lord, I'm
