Lynyrd Skynyrd - "Sweet Home Alabama" (Live At Knebworth '76)

Ο δίσκος των Lynyrd Skynyrd "Live At Knebworth '76"
One, two, three
Turn it up

Big wheels keep on turnin'
Carry me home to see my kin
Singin' songs about the southland
I miss Alabamy once again
And I think it's a sin, yes

Well I heard Mr Young sing about her
(Southern man)
Well, I heard ol' 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

(Ah-ah-ah, Alabama
Ah-ah-ah, Alabama
Ah-ah-ah, Alabama
Ah-ah-ah, Alabama)

Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
And they've been known to pick a song or two
(Yes, they do)
Lord, they get me off so much
They pick me up when I'm feeling blue
Now how 'bout 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 governor's true)
Sweet home Alabama (Lordy)
Lord, I'm coming home to you (Yeah, yeah)

Mont... Montgomery's got the answer


Sweet Home Alabama
Το τραγούδι "Sweet Home Alabama" ήταν το εναρκτήριο του δεύτερου δίσκου των Lynyrd Skynyrd "Second Helping" που κυκλοφόρησε το μακρινό 1974 κι αποτελεί όχι μόνο το πλέον αναγνωρίσιμο κομμάτι της Αμερικάνικης μπάντας, αλλά και τον ύμνο γενικότερα του Southern Rock.

Λέγεται πως αποτελούσε την απάντηση στα τραγούδια του Neil Young "Southern Man" και "Alabama", κάτι που γίνεται εμφανέστατο στους στίχους του δευτέρου κουπλέ:

Well I heard Mr Young sing about her (Southern man) / Well, I heard ol' Neil put her down / Well, I hope Neil Young will remember / A Southern man don't need him around, anyhow.

Το "Sweet Home Alabama" αποτελεί μέρος (πως θα μπορούσε να απουσιάζει;) και του live album "Live At Knebworth '76" που κυκλοφόρησε τον περασμένο Φεβρουάριο...

The show has gone down in Lynyrd Skynyrd history as one of the band’s greatest performances. The 1976 Knebworth show features Ronnie Van Zant’s iconic vocals and their famed triple guitar attack of Gary Rossington, Allen Collins and Steve Gaines in front of a crowd estimated between 150,000 and 200,000.

Their entire performance from that day is here for you to witness the classic Lynyrd Skynyrd in all its glory with cleaned up visuals and remixed audio, available on DVD+CD, Blu-ray+CD and DVD+2LP.»
