Subject: RE: origin and lyr: Alabama Bound
Thanks everyone for your contributions.

Alabama Bound is one of the important early blues songs. The tag has been used and is still being used. The song Big Daddy by John Loudermilk, which was recorded by various country artists, uses the "Alabama bound" tag. There's even a variant by Lynyrd Skynyrd entitled "The Mississippi Kid" which uses the lyric tag.

THE MISSISSIPPI KID- Lynyrd Skynyrd

I've got my pistols in my pockets boys,
I'm alabama bound.
I've got my pistols in my pockets boys,
I'm alabama bound.
Well, I'm not looking for no trouble
But nobody dogs me round.
