Subject: RE: Origins: Roll, Alabama Roll
Thanks for the correction with regard to the Sea King. I shouldn't be so lazy to consult books that are so handy.
I'm with Q with regard to the origin of the song "there comes the Alabama" and no doubt the words and verses changed over time. But the arrival of the Alabama is what inspired the song.
