Rose Of Alabama.

Rose Of Alabama.

Usually I just hate it when a song gets stuck in my head.
But this one I don't mind it at all.
Then again, I have a soft spot for Southern banjo tinkle.
Like all Confederate tunes, this one has its dose of tongue-in-cheekiness and lighthearted irreverence.
Be bold, metalheads:


Away from Mississippi's vale,
With my ol' hat there for a sail,
I crossed upon a cotton bale,
To the Rose of Alabamy.

     Oh Brown Rosie, Rose of Alabamy.
     The sweet tobacco posy is the Rose of Alabamy.

The river rose; the cricket sang,
The lightnin' bug did flash his wing,
Then like a rope my arms I fling,
'Round Rose of Alabamy.

So fare thee well Eliza Jane,
And fare thee well you Belles of fame,
Your charms will all be put to shame,
By the Rose of Alabamy.

And for the truly hardcore: Duelling National Anthems...
