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).

I don't know how the crops survived the drought and then the rain
It must have been a miracle how else could you explain

[Chorus]

The Christ Child born in Bethlehem
He was Joseph and Mary's boy
