Down Home Lyrics by Alabama


Alabama Lyrics

Down Home Lyrics
Just off of the beaten path
A little dot on a state road map
That's where I was born & where I'll die
Things move at a slower pace
Nobody's in a rat race
And these days that's a special way to fly

Down home where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down home a man's good word and a handshake are all you need
Folks know if they're fallin on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up down home

In the corner of a hardware store
Gathered round a checker board
Old men telling lies & crowning kings
Kids drivin round the old town square
Tops rolled down in the cool nite air
Go & see what's shakin at the Dairy Queen

Down home where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down home a man's good word and a handshake are all you need
Folks know if they're fallin on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up down home

When I was a boy I couldn't wait to leave this place
But now I wanna see my children raised

Down home
Down home
Folks know if they're fallin on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up down home

Where they know you by name and treat you like family
Down Home a man's good word & a handshake are all you need
Folks know if they're fallin on hard times they can fall back on
Those of us raised up down home
Down home

Way down home
Down home
Down home
Way down home
Down home
