Trapped in a truck with Jimmy, listening to his band
Jimmy’s out of place same as ashtrays and column shifts
Said his last old lady nearly run him in
Jimmy was born in Bethlehem, Georgia 
He grew up to be a carpenter by trade 
We met four years ago on a job site 
Said he'd just turned 29
in it.
Ray Charles and Lightnin' Hopkins
And a guy like Jimmy Reed
Bo Diddley and Big Mabel
Be all I need!"
It was a dream, a dream I had last
Walter, Otis Spann, Jimmy Reed I say, magic sound
Tell me who, who's gonna fill those shoes
They're the ones who made the blues
Who's gonna fill those
that's a real star put her name in the clouds Alabama

You may never be on television or be the one
Your boss at work loves giving you employee
discretely talk about

Candy says I hate the quiet places
That cause the smallest taste of what will be
Candy says I hate the big decisions
That cause endless
one turned to Jimmy and said
"I love you Jimmy with all of my heart"
Jimmy woke up and tore the place apart

[Chorus: x3]

Well baby now baby hear
always thought
If I had a different name, would my life be different?
Like

Imagine if I had a name like Jimmy Recard
Evolved from the joke of a com’
I've been feelin' down in Atlanta
Immobile in Alabama
I'd rather be in traction
Than to be here where I am
Oh, you Georgia red clay
And green
babies were lying in the bed.
The bigger one talked to Jimmy and said,
"Love you Jimmy with all of my heart".
Jimmy woke up and tore the place apart.
babies were lying in the bed.
The bigger one talked to Jimmy and said,
"Love you Jimmy with all of my heart".
Jimmy woke up and tore the place apart.
I get carried away by things better left unsaid. But heaven ain't no place, brother, and
Love ain't no word sister. And prison ain't no building made
On a hot summer's night 
In the year of '75
Jimmy Doyle took his child bride 
Amanda, for a drive
She was only seventeen 
He just lived to see
and the men who had the horn
And they all looked very happy in the morning

But Jimmy didn't like his place in this world of ours
Where the elephant man broke
one turned to Jimmy and said
"I love you Jimmy with all of my heart"
Jimmy woke up and tore the place apart

[Chorus: x3]

Well baby now baby hear
and the men who had the horn
And they all looked very happy in the morning

Now Jimmy didn't like his place in this world of ours
Where the elephant man
and the men who had the horn
And they all looked very happy in the morning

Now Jimmy didn't like his place in this world of ours
Where the elephant man
the midnight choo-choo leaves for Alabam'
I'll be right there
I've got my fare
When I see that rusty-haired conductor-man
I'll grab him by the collar
carry on
Sweet southern comfort, carry on

As I sit here, I'm surrounded
By these priceless memories
I don't have to think about it
There's no place
carry on
Sweet southern comfort, carry on

As I sit here, I'm surrounded
By these priceless memories
I don't have to think about it
There's no place
Step-by-step this is where I came from
7 Pounds, 6 ounces to graduation
Yeah, this place is in my veins, that's right

These are my stompin' grounds
A first kiss
and the men who had the horn
And they all looked very happy in the morning

Now Jimmy didn't like his place in this world of ours
Where the elephant man
should be told.
And Neil Young always claimed that Sweet Home
Alabama was one of his favorite songs. And legend
Has it that he was an honorary pall
I've been feelin' down in Atlanta
Immobile in Alabama
I'd rather be in traction
Than to be here where I am
Oh, you Georgia red clay
And green
carry on
Sweet southern comfort, carry on

As I sit here, I'm surrounded
By these priceless memories
I don't have to think about it
There's no place
