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). In 1973, after Owen's graduation from Jacksonville State University, they gave up their day jobs and weekend gigs. The group, formerly known as "Wildcountry", left Fort Payne and Lookout Mountain to explore the possibilities of the club scene in surrounding coastal South Carolina.

Sometimes her morning coffee's way too strong
And sometimes what she says she says all wrong
But right or wrong she's there beside me
Like only a friend would be
And that's close enough to perfect for me

Now she's been known to wear her pants too tight
And drinking puts her out just like a light
Heaven know's she's not an angel, but she'd really like to be
And that's close enough to perfect for me

She kisses me each morning
And smiles her sleepy smile
And she don't have to say it
I can see it in her eyes
Don't you worry about my woman
Or what you think she ought to be
'Cause she's close enough to perfect for me

Well sometimes she gets down and starts to cry
But then again a lady has a right
She's everything I ever wanted, she's all I'll ever need
She's close enough to perfect for me

She kisses me each morning
And smiles her sleepy smile
And she don't have to say it
I can see it in her eyes
Don't you worry about my woman
Or what you think she ought to be
'Cause she's close enough to perfect for me

Oh, she's close enough to perfect for me
