Alabama always amazes us with their great songs, and this one was no different! 

"Green River" was originally a rock song recored by the popular group, Creedence Clearwater Revival. They released their song in 1969 and it became popular across the world! So it was no surprise that in 1982 Alabama recorded their rendition of this classic song, and released it on their album Mountain Music. They did an amazing job keeping the original feel of the song, but gave it a little country spin! Great job Alabama, we are really impressed with this cover! 

The song was based on a favorite childhood vacation spot for the song's writer, John Fogerty. The name of the "green river" he refers to is actually called Putah Creek in Northern California. In the song the narrator reminisces on his childhood at the river, and wishes he could go back to the days of catching frogs and rope swinging. 

We all have a special place in our heart for our childhood memories, and this song does a great job turning those feelings into words. 

Alabama's rendition of this song is fantastic, we think John Fogerty would be impressed!

Check out the video to hear Alabama's cover of "Green River", and you won't be disappointed! 

++++++++++LYRICS BELOW++++++++++

Take me back down where cool water flows, y'all.
Let me remember the things I've done:
Walk on the log where the catfish bite;
Walking along the river road at night;
Barefoot girl, dancin' in the moonlight.

I can hear the bullfrog calling me.
Wond'rin' if my rope's still hangin' to the tree.
Ole Brody Juniour took me over;
Said, You're gonna find a well that's colder.
If I'm a bad boss, give some ol' Green River.

Well..

Take me back down where cool water flows, y'all.
Let me remember the things I've done:
Walk on the log where the catfish bite;
Walking along the river road at night;
Barefoot girl, dancin' in the moonlight.

Well..
