Sweet Home Alabama

Sweet Home Alabama.. du dud dud du du....na na nana

Não sei se é a guitarra, se é do groove...transcende-me!
E acabo por gostar de todas as versões. Todas elas...


"Sweet Home Alabama" is a song by Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd that first appeared in 1974 on their second album, Second Helping.
"Sweet Home Alabama" was written partly as an answer to the songs "Southern Man" and "Alabama" by Neil Young, which were critical of the South. "We thought Neil was shooting all the ducks in order to kill one or two," said Ronnie Van Zant at the time. (Dupree 1974) Van Zant's musical response, however, was equally thought-provoking, as it includes ambiguous references to governor George Wallace and the Watergate scandal, which have generated discussion over the years. Despite (or perhaps aided by) the debate over the song, it has become one of the most popular Southern rock songs in rock music history. It reached the top ten of the US charts in 1974 and was the band's first hit single. [1]
None of the three writers of the song were originally from Alabama. Ronnie Van Zant and Gary Rossington were both born in Jacksonville, Florida. King, a former member of the Strawberry Alarm Clock, was from Glendale, California.
