"Alabama" as written by and Doyle Primm Allison Moorer....
She picked up the telephone,
All the heard was dial tone.
She really thought she'd heard it ring this time.
She said, "what am I thinking?
I must be only dreaming.
Or maybe it's the hundred times he's crossed my mind just tonight."

Maybe I miss your loving.
Maybe I miss your kiss just a little bit.
Maybe I miss your body lying right next to mine.
Maybe I miss your touch a little too much.

Tossing and turning.
Her skins still burning
From the fire in his hands.
Running on empty.
She needs somebody,
But somebody wouldn't understand.
And the telephone rings.

Maybe I miss your loving.
Maybe I miss your kiss just a little bit.
Maybe I miss your body lying right next to mine.
Maybe I miss your touch a little too much.

Talked about Savannah,
Sweet Home Alabama,
And how I miss the way she always smiled.
Are you coming back soon
By the harvest moon
If I have to walk every mile on my knees.

Maybe I miss your loving.
Maybe I miss your kiss just a little bit.
Maybe I miss your body lying right next to mine.
Maybe I miss your touch a little to much.

Now maybe I miss your loving.
Maybe I miss your lips just a little bit.
Maybe I miss your body lying right next to mine.
Maybe I miss your touch a little too much.

A little too much.
A little too much.

    General CommentI love this song, the meaning is pretty obvious. It's about either a couple who are apart long distance and they miss each other or it's about a couple who broke up but are now realizing they miss each other "a little too much." Good song, CCR rock.

    General CommentTotally love this song. To me, it's about long distance, since I'm in a long distance relationship right now, and that's about how I feel. There's nothing quite like the pain of wanting to be in the presense of the one you're in love with, of missing every part of that - even just "your body lying right next to mine". This definitely reminds me of my fiance and I.

    General CommentI like the new version off of the soul gravy album of this song. This is how I want to feel when I'm in love, even if it's long distance. It's just a beautiful and passionate song. Let's hope Dierks Bentley sings more about this band in his next song. I heard about this band because of his song free and easy down the road I go when he sings ragweed's rocking on his radio. I'm disappointed in the lack of comments for them:( so sad, this band rocks.
