Stars Fell on Alabama

Stars Fell on Alabama

(Frank Perkins / Mitchell Parish)

Al Goodman's Orchestra

We lived our little drama
We kissed in a field of white
And stars fell on Alabama last night

I can't forget the glamour
Your eyes held a tender light
And stars fell on Alabama last night

I never planned in my imagination a situation so heavenly
A fairy land where no one else could enter
In the centre, just you and me, dear

My heart beat like a hammer
My arms wound around you tight
And stars fell on Alabama last night
