I said, "Mama don't you worry
I'm getting by just fine out on the road
Yeah, tonight we played in Knoxville
And tomorrow night it's back to Music Row

No, I don't know when I'm comin' home
Montgomery seems so very far away"
She said, "Boy, it wouldn't kill you now
To look out past the bright lights on that stage

'Cause God put stars in Alabama
You just can't find in Tennessee
The same ones are waiting on you
That taught you how to dream

I know there's big names up in Nashville
And you'll be one before too long
But God put stars in Alabama
To help you find your way back home

I hung up the phone and I could feel
The emptiness at 80 miles an hour
And I listened close and I could hear
My heart beating louder than the tires

This old bus was headed west
But my mind was drifting
Somewhere towards the south
And I closed my eyes and I could see
The bright lights shining clearly through the clouds

'Cause God put stars in Alabama
You just can't find in Tennessee
The same ones are waiting on you
That taught you how to dream

She said, "There's big names up in Nashville
And you'll be one before too long
But God put stars in Alabama
To help you find your way back home

Yeah, there's stars in Alabama
That just can't wait 'til you get home
