Lyrics

Last week I got a letter from my brother
He's livin down on the bayou
Says he's got it all together
Where the streets are paved with gold
The milkman brings wine in the morning
All the children there, they never grow old
The weather's always perfect
Sun is always shining

I was sitting on my porch yesterday
Contemplatin the meaning of life and such
And I realized that I need to get out
I'm hoppin on a bus, now I'm goin down south singin

Oh on a bus to Alabama
C'mon get on the bus to Alabama
We're on the bus to Alabama if you're with me I need to hear ya say
Oh on a bust to Alabama
C'mon get on the bus to Alabama
We're on the bust to Alabama get on get on git on Aooright!

Life's all downhill from here I know it
Even with my luck, there's no way that I can blow it
I can feel it comin closer every minute that I'm sittin here
Said I'm gonna get me a gator and name her Peggy-Sue
Cause baby, it's me and you goin

Were on a bus to Alabama
Oh on a bus to Alabama
C'mon get on the bus to Alabama
We're on the bus to Alabama if you're with me I need to hear ya say
Oh on a bust to Alabama
C'mon get on the bus to Alabama

Gwan gwan woo woo
Gwan gwan woo woo

Oh and i say
Oh on a bus to Alabama
C'mon get on the bus to Ala
