Lyrics for the Alabama State Song

Alabama

Alabama, Alabama,

We will aye be true to thee,

From thy Southern shores where groweth,

By the sea thy orange tree,

To thy Northern vale where floweth,

Deep and blue thy Tennessee.

Alabama, Alabama, we will aye be true to thee.

Broad thy stream whose name thou bearest,

Grand thy Bigbee rolls along.

Fair thy Coosa-Tallapoosa,

Bold thy Warrior dark and strong.

Goodlier than the land that Moses

Climbed lone Nebb’s Mount to see.

Alabama, Alabama, we will aye be true to thee.

Brave and pure thy men and women,

Better this than corn and wine.

Make us worthy, God in Heaven

Of this goodly land of Thine.

Hearts as open as thy doorways,

Liberal hands and spirits free.

Alabama, Alabama, we will aye be true to thee.

Little, little can I give to thee,

Alabama, mother mine,

But that had little – hand, brain spirit.

All I have and am are thine.

Take, O take, the gift and giver,

Take and serve thyself with me.

Alabama, Alabama, will aye be true to thee.
