About The Song

Alabama’s “Mountain Music” holds two possibilities! There are actually two songs associated with Alabama and the title “Mountain Music”:

  1. Original Song (1981):
  • Released in 1981 on their album “Feels So Right”
  • Genre: Country
  • Not as well-known as the second version

This earlier version of “Mountain Music” doesn’t have much information readily available online. It might be a lesser-known track on the album.

  1. Song Featured on “Alabama & Friends At The Ryman” (2014):
  • Released in 2014 on the live album “Alabama & Friends At The Ryman”
  • Genre: Country
  • A live performance with guest artists

This version is likely the one you’re interested in, as it’s a live performance and more recent. Here’s what we can glean:

  • It was most likely a cover song performed by Alabama with guest artists during their appearance at The Ryman Auditorium, a historic venue in Nashville, Tennessee.
  • Without additional details about the specific performance or guest artists, it’s difficult to pinpoint the original artist or the exact rendition they performed.

Lyrics

🎵 Let’s sing along with the lyrics! 🎤
Oh, play me some mountain musicLike grandma and grandpa used to playThen I’ll float on down the riverTo a Cajun hideaway
Drift away like Tom SawyerRide a raft with ol’ Huck FinnTake a nap like Rip Van WinkleDaze dreamin’ again
Oh, play me some mountain musicLike grandma and grandpa used to playThen I’ll float on down the riverTo a Cajun hideaway
Swim across the riverJust to prove that I’m a manSpend the day bein’ lazyJust bein’ nature’s friend
Climb a long tall hick’ryBend it over, skinnin’ catsPlayin’ baseball with chert rocksUsin’ sawmill slabs for bats
Play some back-home, come-on musicThat comes from the heartPlay somethin’ with lots of feelin’‘Cause that’s where music has to start
Oh, play me some mountain musicLike grandma and grandpa used to playThen I’ll float on down the riverTo a Cajun hideaway, hey, hey!
Oh, play me mountain musicOh, play me mountain musicOh, play me mountain musicOh, play (yee-haw!)
