Intro Chords: 
D  C  G  F 

D                  C                G                  F
Church blows up in Birmingham, four little black girls killed 
For no goddamn good reason
D                 C              G               F
All this hate and violence can't come to no good end
A stain on the good name
  D                 C              G                  F 
A whole lot of good people dragged thru the blood and glass
Blood stains on their good names and all of us take the blame
    G                              F 
Meanwhile in North Alabama, Wilson Pickett comes to town
     Bb                                      C                    D
To record that sweet soul music, to get that Muscle Shoals sound
    G                              F
Meanwhile in North Alabama, Aretha Franklin comes to town
     Bb                                      C
To record that sweet soul music, to get that Muscle Shoals sound

Intro Chords

Out in California, a rock star from Canada 
Wrote a couple of great songs about the bad s**t that went down
"Southern Man" and "Alabama" certainly told some truth
But there were a lot of good folks down here and Neil Young wasn't around
Meanwhile in North Alabama, Lynyrd Skynyrd came to town
To record with Jimmy Johnson at Muscle Shoals Sound
And they met some real good people, not no racist piece of s**t
And they wrote a song about it and that song became a hit

D                G 
Ronnie and Neil, Ronnie and Neil
F                      Bb
Rock stars today ain't half as real
D                       G
Speaking there minds on how they feel
         F                 D
Let your guitars blast for Ronnie and Neil

Intro chords

Now Ronnie and Neil became good friends their feud was just in song
Skynyrd was a bunch of Neil Young fans and Neil he loved that song
So he wrote "Powderfinger" for Skynyrd to record
But Ronnie ended up singing "Sweet Home Alabama" to the lord
And Neil helped carry Ronnie in his casket to the ground
And to my way of thinking, us southern men need both of them around

Wrong notes entirely. You forgot to take into account the song being tuned down one step. The actual riff goes: Em7, D, Cadd9, G, while the guitar is tuned down a full step.
