This song is pure Country with a twinge of Southern Rock N' Roll

Lyrics

Alabama's Sleeping

18 wheels toward California
Like you've done so many times
Now it just keeps getting easier
To tear a hole right through your life

Well that empty thrill she gives you
Fades by morning light
In your wake you leave destruction
For your children and your wife


Chorus
While Alabama's sleeping
California's cheating
In your headlights there's no reason
To let your rear view fade away


All this trust and understanding
That you've built through all these years
Will come crashing down behind you
If you keep running through these gears

2000 miles to think about it
Don't think that it's too late
Brother turn this truck around
Highway 20 runs both ways


Chorus
While Alabama's sleeping
California's cheating
In your headlights there's no reason
To let your rear view fade away

Ain't so sweet home Alabama
And California's just a dream
In your headlights there's no reason
To let your rear view fade away
