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). In 1973, after Owen's graduation from Jacksonville State University, they gave up their day jobs and weekend gigs.

I'm not a stranger to passion, 
I've seen a lot of love in my time
Felt that physical attraction, 
From the touch in the heat of the night
Been all over the country, 
Started my share of new flames
But after all is said and done, 
there's only one that remains

Dixie fire burning down in my soul
Dixie fire it never leaves me whole
It took a hometown girl to show me
How cruel these hot summer nights can be
Now there's a Dixie fire burning in the heart of me
Burning in the heart of me

Searching for some kind of direction, 
Looking for a guiding light
Needed to see a lighthouse, 
Like a ship on a stormy night
Somehow you heard my music, 
You felt the sadness in me
You took the words that were so cold, 
And added a warm melody


Burn, burn, burning 
Burn, burn, burning (Cant you see that Im)
Burn, burn, burning (There's a Dixie fire)
Burn, burn, burning (Don't you know that Im)
Burn, burn, burning 
Burn, burn, burning
