Capo 2

G                   F              C            G    
One night I went to town and met a girl from Alabama
G             F               C               D
In her eyes I saw the sadness she had seen in life
  G                 F                 C           G
I found out she had spent some wasted years in Chicago
        G               F           C              D
She had known a hundred men or more but never as a wife

Chorus 1:
        G             C              G
She was going home to start her life again in Alabama
      G  	        C            D
Where she had been and why God only knows
      G                  C                  G
But I love that girl and begged her just to stay with me in Nashville
G                       F  C    G
And I call that girl my Alabama Rose

The days turned into weeks and I was sure she'd learn to love me
But sometimes late at night I'd wake and listen to her cry
The sun came up one morning and my Rose was not beside me
I got that feeling like you want to die

Chorus 2:
Now I wonder if she ever made it back to Alabama
Where she is and why God only knows
But she must know no matter where she goes my dreams go with her
Cause I still love my Alabama Rose

God knows I love my Alabama Rose
