Alabama


Words by Julia S. Tutwiler and Music by Mrs. Edna Gockel Gussen
Adopted March 9th, 1931


Alabama, Alabama,
We will aye be true to thee,
From thy Southern shores where groweth,
By the sea thy orange tree,
To thy Northern vale where floweth,
Deep and blue thy Tennessee.
Alabama, Alabama, we will aye be true to thee.

Broad thy stream whose name thou bearest,
Grand thy Bigbee rolls along.
Fair thy Coosa-Tallapoosa,
Bold thy Warrior dark and strong.
Goodlier than the land that Moses
Climbed lone Nebb's Mount to see.
Alabama, Alabama, we will aye be true to thee.

Brave and pure thy men and women,
Better this than corn and wine.
Make us worthy, God in Heaven
Of this goodly land of Thine.
Hearts as open as thy doorways,
Liberal hands and spirits free.
Alabama, Alabama, we will aye be true to thee.

Little, little can I give to thee,
Alabama, mother mine,
But that had little - hand, brain spirit.
All I have and am are thine.
Take, O take, the gift and giver,
Take and serve thyself with me.
Alabama, Alabama, will aye be true to thee.
