The Mountain Goats Stars Fell on Alabama Lyrics

[Verse 1: John Darnielle]
You looked real calm as we made our way up the walk
There were lazy kisses and hands brushing and small talk
The moon was high, your smooth face was high
And the kudzu grew

[Chorus]
And the stars fell on Alabama
And your eyes filled up with light
And the stars fell on Alabama

[Verse 2]
The warm earth underneath us gave way
Dry grass crinkled like paper as the breeze came across the bay
Cold clean water nearby glimmered in your eyes
And your pistol glistened

[Chorus]

But if you think I'll take a bullet for you, you're dreaming
