Lyrics

It's done in Alabama (You shall be free) Way down in Louisianna (You shall be free) It's down in Alabama (You shall be free) Now, now, now nobody's gonna set 'em down Lord have mercy on my soul How many chickens have I stole? One last night and night before I'm goin' back and try and get 10 or 'leven more Started gettin' more (You shall be free) I love my chicken baby (You shall be free) But down in Alabama (You shall be free) Now, now, now nobody's gonna set 'em down Nine feet, ten feet Going across a hill Nine feet stepped on Ten feet hill Nine feet turn around But ten feet cleared His teeth fell out But his tongue stayed in ???????????? (You shall be free) Six, seven, eight now (You shall be free) Way down in Alababa (You shall be free) Now, now, now nobody's gonna set 'em down

Leo the monkey Told the lion one day A bad little fella's comin' your way He talked about your family It's a crying shame Your mama's workin' on the chain gang She's bustin' bricks now (You shall be free) She's workin' hard, baby (You shall be free) But down in Alabama (You shall be free) Now, now, now nobody's gonna set 'em down The preacher and the digger Were friends one day Along came a bear Comin' down the way A preacher told the digger ???????????? He said, lord our prayer won't kill this bear We got to make it baby (You shall be free) We got to run for it (You shall be free) But down in Alababa (You shall be free) Now, now, now nobody's gonna set 'em down Way down in Alababa (You shall be free) Way down in Louisianna (You shall be free) Now, now, now nobody's gonna set 'em down
