We Need a New State Song!

We need a new state song - one more in touch with the essence of Alabama and its people.  Let's face it: "Alabama" by Julia Tutweiler just doesn't make it. Let's leave naming a women's prison after the old girl, and let it go at that.

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!
