    What? No Plumber? Everyone on that list will need a plumber at one time or another.
    Not vice versa.

    No, but I used to be one.

    If you work 40 hard hours a week there is a place for you with Alabama.

    But there are many other surprises yet to come and in the end everyone will be a star.

    Here is their song Paul.


    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 blue the 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 Nebo's Mount to see,
    Alabama, Alabama, we will aye be true to thee!

    From thy prairies broad and fertile,
    Where thy snow-white cotton shines,
    To the hills where coal and iron
    Hide in thy exausted mines,
    Strong -armed miners -sturdy farmers;
    Loyal hearts what'er we be,
    Alabama, Alabama, we will aye be true to thee!

    From thy quarries where the marble
    White as that of Paros gleams
    Waiting till thy sculptor'ss chisel,
    Wake to life thy poet's dreams;
    Fear not only wealth of nature,
    Wealth of mind has no fee,
    Alabama, Alabama, we will aye be true to thee!

    Where the perfumed south-wind whispers,
    Thy magnolia groves among,
    Softer than a mother's kisses,
    Sweeter than a mother's song,
    Where the golden jasmine trailing,
    Woos the treasure-laden bee,
    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 thee,
    Alabama, mother mine.
    But that 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, we will aye be true to thee!


    On March 3, 1931 the music by Mrs. Edna Gockel Gussen, Birmingham, was adopted by the State Federation of Music Clubs and through their efforts, Alabama House Joint Resolution 74 , Act no. 128, adopted the music and words as the state song of Alabama.
