"All Summer Long" as written by Edward C. King, Gary Robert Rossington, Ronnie Van Zant, Warren Zevon, Robert J. Ritchie, Leroy P. Marinell, Robert T. Wachtel and Matthew Shafer....
It was 1989, my thoughts were short my hair was long
Caught somewhere between a boy and man
She was seventeen and she was far from in-between
It was summertime in Northern Michigan
Ahh Ahh Ahh
Ahh Ahh Ahh

Splashing through the sand bar
Talking by the campfire
It's the simple things in life, like when and where
We didn't have no internet
But man I never will forget
The way the moonlight shined upon her hair

And we were trying different things
We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking 'bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long

Catching Walleye from the dock
Watching the waves roll off the rocks
She'll forever hold a spot inside my soul
We'd blister in the sun
We couldn't wait for night to come
To hit that sand and play some rock and roll

While we were trying different things
And we were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking 'bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long

Now nothing seems as strange as when the leaves began to change
Or how we thought those days would never end
Sometimes I'll hear that song and I'll start to sing along
And think man I'd love to see that girl again

And we were trying different things
We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking 'bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long

And we were trying different things
We were smoking funny things
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking 'bout tomorrow
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long

Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long

    General CommentDoes no one understand this song is a mashup? It sounds a lot like those other tunes because it is purposely build from them as a tribute. Listen to the lyrics, it's all about remembering songs attached to memories in your past. Doh.

    General CommentI've never really been a fan of Kid Rock but have to admit I really like this song. Reading an interview with him about this song he contacted both Warren Zevon's son and also the Lynyrd Skynyrd estate to get permission. Additionally, Billy Powell (from Lynyrd Skynyrd) plays piano on the song.

    General CommentThe song is about looking back on the days when we were young and remembering the great times we had with our first love.

    Kid Rock uses Sweet Home Alabama to remember the girl who captured his soul in his youth.

    It truly is a beautiful song, with deep dear meaning.

    sweet home alabama is a song by lynyrd skynyrd that him and his girl are singing that summer :) its fairly popular i mean ppl all over the country sing it :)

    Now nothing seems as strange

    And think, Man I'd love to see that girl again

    General CommentWow, no one has commented on this fantastic song yet? I love the "Sweet Home Alabama" sample. In fact, I like this version better than that one which is saying a lot.

    I love the first verse because it reminds me of past summers in the gorgeous state of Michigan where I live.

    General Commenti like this song quite a fair bit, however, i think its kinda lame that he just used warren zevon's warewolves of london, and sweet home alabama, and then put an extra beat on it

    but other then that 2 thumbs up
