I am searching for a song that I sang in the fourth grade at a school play. I think the title is "I like to live in Alabam" if not that is definitely one of the most prominent lyrics that is repeated over and over. The song also mentions several types of food like black eyed peas and country ham. That's about all I can remember. Thanks for your help.

I like to live in Alabam-
Friendship there is not a sham.
Anywhere in that old state,
Where good neighbors congregate.
I like to live in Alabam-
Decatur, Cullman, Birmingham.

I like to eat in Alabam,
Hot cornbread and country ham,
Beans and bacon, black-eyed peas,
Someone pass the biscuits, please.


That's all I remember.

Another school mate says the lyrics "beans and bacon" should be replaced by "grits and gravy"....

Here's another snippet:
    Once a week at school we would have assemblies. We would have patriotic talks and sing songs
    like, "I like to live in Alabam', Mobile, Selma, Birmingham. In a hole just give a shout,
    someone's mule will pull you out. I like to live in Alabam', Mobile, Selma, Birmingham."
