Sweet Home Alabama è un brano del 1974 inciso dai Lynyrd Skynyrd col loro secondo album Second Helping. E’ stata concepita da Ed King, ascoltando un’idea dell’altro chitarrista Gary Rossington e poi riarrangiando il riff di chitarra sulla medesima base armonica.
La canzone, oltre al suddetto riff, inizia con un’esclamazione di Ronnie Van Zant (“Turn it up!”) la quale è stata lasciata quasi accidentalmente, in quanto il cantante necessitava di un volume più alto in cuffia in sede di registrazione e nessuno ha poi provveduto a rimuoverla. Oltre a questa ve ne sono altre due abbastanza celate (“Southern Man” a 0:55, udibile solo nel canale di sinistra in riferimento al brano di Neil Young ed un’altra frase recitata da Van Zant a 4:48).

Well, I heard Mister Young sing about her
Well, I heard ole Neil put her down.
Well, I hope Neil Young will remember,
A southern man don't need him around anyhow

Sweet home Alabama,
Where the skies are so blue,
Sweet home Alabama,
Lord, I'm coming home to you.
 	F	C	D
In Birmingham they love the Gov'nor   B	oo  h	oo  h	oo !
Now we all did what we could do.
Now Watergate does not bother me.
Does your conscience bother you? (tell the truth)

CHORUS

Now Muscle Shoals has got the Swampers
And they've been known to pick a tune or two
Lord they get me off so much
They pick me up when I'm feeling blue
Now how about you?

CHORUS

[Lynyrd Skynyrd]
