Throw another log on the fire, boys
George Wallace is coming to stay
When he met St. Peter at the pearly gates
I'd like to think that a black man stood in the way

I know, all should be forgiven
But he did what he done so well
So throw another log on the fire boys
George Wallace is a coming

Now, he said he was the best friend
A black man from Alabama ever had
And I have to admit, compared to Fob James
George Wallace don't seem that bad

And if it's true that he wasn't a racist
And he just did all them things for the votes
I guess Hell's just the place for
'Kiss Ass Politicians', who pander to assholes

So throw another log on the fire, boys
George Wallace is coming to stay
I know, in the end, he got the black people's votes
But I bet they'd still vote him this way

And Hell's just a little bit hotter
'Cause he played his hand so well
He had what it took to take it so far
Now the Devil's got a Wallace sticker on the back of his car

Now the Mule-ettes walk out in devil horns and tails
Raise their hands in the air and sing

Oh Alabama

Songwriters
Morgan, Paul Leonard
