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

[Chorus:]
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

[Repeat Chorus x2]

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

    This is a great song, and should be left alone by censors and the various radio stations. Why are the lyrics "We were smoking funny things" editted when this song is played on-air? Why is it okay to leave the lyrics "Sipping whiskey out the bottle" and promote drinking and alcoholism, but it's "inappropriate" to say "We were smoking funny things" which promotes smoking and drug use? Just goes to prove that nobody has a clue as to what is inappropriate and what's not.

    This song is talking about having a completely funn and pointles great summer. A summer that every single perosn wants to have. Not a care in the world just having a great time with a great person. I love this song so much. And I like how he incorparated sweet home alabama in the song cause that song was and still is a classic.! Plus kid rock is "the rock and roll jesus..." his new album says it all.

    For me it was June 1999, my thoughts were on being in love & getting a divorce
    I was 46 He was 28 and it was summertime in Dayton, Ohio.
    Yeah a few times we smoked a funny thing and made love everywhere we could --- drinking tequila and hot sauce.
    Catching catfish in his dads farm pond in Hazard, Ky and watching family members pass away (so sad) but we held each other till the break of day.
    Now its June 2008 and we have finally went out separate ways and the love - hate relationship has come to and end but I would love to hold that boy again who's now become a man.
