[HOOK] Colorado is too cold for Alabama blood / yeah it’s too cold for Alabama blood / Colorado is too cold for Alabama blood / plus you know I got Alabama love / Minnesota is too cold for Alabama blood / uh huh it’s too cold for Alabama blood / Minnesota is too cold for Alabama blood / plus you know...

[VERSE 1] They say gotta get outta town gotta get outta dodge / gotta get out the ‘Ham get the hell out the garage / chasing a dream that seem more like a mirage / gotta keep it real can’t keep up the facade / naysaying nonbelievers all say stop / we admire your passion but don’t quit your day job / I’ve never quit believing that it'll soon pay off / same dream 17 years no days off / tired of short change from the boss / no pain no gain so the name’s gonna cost / and soon I’ll rub his face in the sauce / in front of a couple K on the stage playing SLOSS / that’s just facts my fault / it’s more than passion a stash in the vault / ashes to ashes but I won’t fall / go from rats in the kitchen to plaques on the wall / plus the writing on the stall in the Syn den called put 'em all on strike till the ten pins fall / 'till we all get involved problems solved / Alabama's on the map lookin' awesome for all / no more 40 hour weeks no more we play for free / no more living in a fear of things we can't see / ain't no thing in life that we can't be / keep a Glory Fire lit like I'm Lee Bains III c’mon [HOOK]

[VERSE 2] They say the state got the talent that it takes / but the talent buyers hardly looking Alabama's way / and they say yeah sure Alabama's great / but nobody trying to make sure that Alabama's straight / like a phantom in the race with a sound fan base / Eastlake face with the downtown Faith / skate to escape from the Alabama Jake / ain't no landing in the slammer so the man ran away / take advantage for the band to land a break / Atlanta to the Bay plan and innovate / make some alabama moves so that Alabama Shakes / panorama view with a hand around my fate / damn great plug the power in and play / hit Seasick dig for hours in the crates / on the way to Avondale at Saturn we caffeinate / peep the show calendar what's happening Saturday / Substrate sticker on the pickup with the Alabama plates / you can see I'm alabama made / I’m just trying to keep some balance on my plate / walk a fine line between Thoreau and Alexander Great / moves Yellowhammer make put the rattles on a snake / hear 'em rally round the lake looking shallow in their wake / Sun Ra cast shadows on the hate / still 86 fake to the date no debate [HOOK]

[VERSE 3] The long struggle make a strong man fit / the wrong hustle make a man flip quick / that's why my bands gotta plan licks LIT / What you saying who you playing with / sick all hand picked / Jamric's the man with the plan fifth Beatle in the band shit / George Martin art and then enhance it / we just try to supply what's demanded / break the internet make 'em expand the bandwidth / we finally at the top where we ought to be / never take for granted ‘cause the bottom's still a part of me / RIP Bottletree gone not forgot first time we rocked Lobotomix it's like we hit the lottery / apologies in advance but we did it for the fans / always had bigger plans had to take a chance / Alabama love and an album in demand / ain't no alabama blood on these Alabama hands
