moved on down to sweet home alabama in 1974
had to get out of music city and i had to get off the road
woman she left
and the people wouldn't let me sing nothin but them old sad songs,
had to get high so i wouldn't cry you known they hit pretty close to home
i'm feelin better now that i'm back on the road
gettin it together between Macon and Muscle shoals
i started turnin' up loud and lookin at the crowd and bendin' them guitar strings,
knew all the while, though it was my style, could they ever forget my name?
rocked 'em in Raleigh Knocked 'em out in Knoxville, just couldn't do no wrong
people went wild and the band said child better keep on playing your songs

well my life ain't the same
and i had to change
and i hope this music will show
a little bit less of cryin and the beer and a little of my own soul
waylon and toy and all of them boys i want to say thanks to you
your fiddle and your steel make me play what i feel and i don't feel lovesick blues

repeat chorus

i'm feelin better maybe eat a little corn bread
been eatin that corn bread lovin on the feather bed smokein that homegrown writin some new songs they won't do you wrong oh eat a little corn bread lovin on the feather bed drinkin that homegrown writin some new songs this hear music's homegrown
repeat chorus
