So what should be Alabama's State Song? This is a no-brainer, in my opinion.
Let it be "Sweet Home Alabama," by Lynyrd Skynyrd.
The "Alabama Song" by Kurt Weill is too Germanic, although the Doors did a good version back umpteen many years ago.
If "Louis, Louie" and "Rocky Top" can make State Song Valhalla, then "Sweet Home Alabama" sure as hell can make it too.
WaR Damn Eagle!
