Lyrics

Muscle Shoals

words and music by: Rev.Roger Anthony Yolanda Mapes


Way down in North Alabama  along the river Tennessee. There lies a sleepy

little town that still haunts me in my dreams...Muscle Shoals.

vs 1. Muscle Shoals had a music scene that attracted many stars. From Lynrd Skynrd to Bob Dylan-The Rolling Stones to Aretha. Thats where I learned to sing and play guitar-in a gospel bluegrass band. I knew one day I would be a star because God had a plan.

 


bridge: And I learned how to dream big -don't cha know that the South will rise again. .. and I

learned how to be a good boy and take Jesus by the hand..in Muscle Shoals...


chorus: Muscle Shoals Alabama- Muscle Shoals- Muscle Shoals, Muscle Shoals- Muscle

Shooooooooals- Muscle Shoals Alabama- Muscle Shoals Alabama the Hit Recording Capital of the World! (guitar rif)

 

vs 2. I was a lonely boy in Muscle Shoals-it wasn't easy. Ya know I tried to hide my differences-forbidden feelings, but everybody thought they knew what I was -without my saying...and the onslaught or ridicule was devastating.

 

bridge: And I wish that I could've chewed my tongue off to the nub...better that than the taste of my humiliation..in Muscle Shoals...

 

chorus: Muscle Shoals Alabama-the Hit Recording Capital of the World!

 

vs 3. My Daddy died and the family moved on away from Muscle Shoals..to North Carolina and to Florida..we lost the family home...but it ain't over till the fat girl sings. thats why some day I'll go back home. Just to sit by my Daddy;s grave and sing my sweetest song.

 

bridge: Cause he taught me to dream big -don't cha know that the South will rise again. ..and he taught me to be a good boy and take Daddy by the hand..in Muscle Shoals...

 

chorus: Muscle Shoals Alabama-the Hit Recording Capital of the World!
