Alabama

Alabama is a country music and southern rock band from Fort Payne, Alabama, United States. The band was founded in 1969 by Randy Owen (lead vocals, Rhythm Guitar) and his cousin Teddy Gentry (bass guitar, background vocals), soon joined by Jeff Cook (Lead Guitar, fiddle, keyboards).

Down on the river, it's an easy kind of life
Everybody here's feeling fine
No need to worry or get in a hurry
Nothing to spend but time

Light up a smoke and tell a few jokes
And pass the old jug around
We're gonna get right on a Saturday night
When the sun goes down

Down on the river, down on the river
Just some old boys a making a lot of noise
Down on the river, down on the river, down on the river
If anyone calls tell them, we're all down on the river

Well, we'll go fishing by the light of the moon
And bait them hooks by hand
Early in the morning take them off the line
Fry 'em all up in a pan

We gotta get home while we still got a job
Or we'll have to answer to the man
And everybody knows we gotta go
We'll be back again

Down on the river, down on the river
