    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.

    I grew up in Alabama; is that close enough?

    And yes, I remember that state song, although we never had to sing all of those verses in school.

    Forty Hour Week (For A Livin')

    There are people in this country who work hard every day.
    Not for fame or fortune do they strive.
    But the fruits of their labor are worth more than their pay.
    And it's time a few of them were recognized.

    Hello Detroit auto workers, let me thank you for your time.
    You work a forty hour week for a livin', just to send it on down the line.
    Hello Pittsburgh steel mill workers, let me thank you for your time.
    You work a forty hour week for a livin', just to send it on down the line.

    This is for the one who swings the hammer, driving home the nail.
    Or the one behind the counter, ringing up the sale.
    Or the one who fights the fires, the one who brings the mail.
    For everyone who works behind the scenes.

    You can see them every morning in the factories and the fields.
    In the city streets and the quiet country towns.
    Working together like spokes inside a wheel.
    They keep this country turning around.

    Hello Kansas wheat field farmer, let me thank you for your time.
    You work a forty hour week for a livin', just to send it on down the line.
    Hello West Virginia coal miner, let me thank you for your time.
    You work a forty hour week for a livin', just to send it on down the line.

    This one is for the one who drives the big rig, up and down the road.
    Or the one out in the warehouse, bringing in the load.
    Or the waitress, the mechanic, the policeman on patrol.
    For everyone who works behind the scenes.
    With a spirit you can't replace with no machine.

    Hello, America,
    Let me thank you for your time.
    I can't believe how incredulous I am.

    I'm a lobbyist -- but I used to be an airline pilot living in Magnolia Springs, Alabama (back in the days of George and Lurleen).
