Alabama


Alabama
The devil fools with the best laid plan
Swing low Alabama
You got the spare change
You got to feel strange
And now the moment
is all that it meant

Alabama, you got the weight on your shoulders that’s breaking your back
Your Cadillac has got a wheel in the ditch and a wheel on the track

Alabama

Banjos playing through the broken glass
Windows down in Alabama
See the old folks
tied in white ropes
Hear the banjo
Don’t it take you down home?

Alabama, you got the weight on your shoulders that’s breaking your back.
Your Cadillac has got a wheel in the ditch and a wheel on the track

Alabama
Can I see you and shake your hand?
Make friends down in Alabama
I’m from a new land
I come to you and
See all this ruin
What are you doing 

Alabama?
You got the rest of the union to help you along
What’s going wrong?

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
