'Stars Fell on Alabama'

I'm here at the home of novelist Tito Perdue, on the lakefront about 10 miles north of Wetumpka, Alabama. We were out on the deck, beneath a clear midnight sky, and I couldn't help but think of the splendid arrangement of "Stars Fell On Alabama" performed by the world-famous Marching Southerners of my alma mater, Jacksonville (Ala.) State University.

UPDATE: Thanks to Cynthia Yockey for this Doris Day rendition of "Stars Fell On Alabama":

Man, they don't write 'em like that anymore.

  1. On the other hand, I'm tickled pinker than a pig in a poke that Alabama license tags have changed from "Stars fell..." to "Sweet Home Alabama"
