G  D  C  G

G               D          C                   G
You looked real calm as we made our way up the walk

G               D       C                  G
There were lazy kisses, hands brushing and small talk

G            D     G                    C
The moon was high, your smooth face was dry and the

kudzu.... grew


        G     D       G
and the stars fell on alabama

         D                   G
and your eyes filled up with lightning

              D       G      C     G    D    G
and the stars fell on alaba- ma

G        D                   C    G
The warm earth underneath us gave way

          D                        C                         G
dry grass crinkled like paper as a breeze came in across the bay

cold clean water nearby

G         C
glimmered in your eyes

         G       D
and your pistol      (glistened)

        G     D       G
and the stars fell on alabama

         D                   G
and your eyes filled up with lightning

              D       G      C
and the stars fell on alaba- ma

                             G                      D              G
but if you think I'll take a bullet for you, you're dreaming!
