Ronnie & Neil

Intro:  D  C  G  F  

D                  C                G                  F 
Church blows up in Birmingham, four little black girls killed  
For no goddamn good reason 
D                 C              G               F 
All this hate and violence can't come to no good end 
A stain on the good name 
  D                 C              G                  F  
A whole lot of good people dragged thru the blood and glass 
Blood stains on their good names and all of us take the blame 
    G                              F  
Meanwhile in North Alabama, Wilson Pickett comes to town 
     Bb                                      C                    D 
To record that sweet soul music, to get that Muscle Shoals sound 
    G                              F 
Meanwhile in North Alabama, Aretha Franklin comes to town 
     Bb                                      C 
To record that sweet soul music, to get that Muscle Shoals sound 

Intro Chords:

Out in California, a rock star from Canada  
Wrote a couple of great songs about the bad s**t that went down 
"Southern Man" and "Alabama" certainly told some truth 
But there were a lot of good folks down here and Neil Young wasn't around 
Meanwhile in North Alabama, Lynyrd Skynyrd came to town 
To record with Jimmy Johnson at Muscle Shoals Sound 
And they met some real good people, not no racist piece of s**t 
And they wrote a song about it and that song became a hit 

D                G  
Ronnie and Neil, Ronnie and Neil 
F                      Bb 
Rock stars today ain't half as real 
D                       G 
Speaking there minds on how they feel 
         F                 D 
Let your guitars blast for Ronnie and Neil 


Now Ronnie and Neil became good friends their feud was just in song 
Skynyrd was a bunch of Neil Young fans and Neil he loved that song 
So he wrote "Powderfinger" for Skynyrd to record 
But Ronnie ended up singing "Sweet Home Alabama" to the lord 
And Neil helped carry Ronnie in his casket to the ground 
And to my way of thinking, us southern men need both of them around 

Chorus (2x)
