lyrics

When the city sleeps
She’s singing sweet sweet lullabys
the crickets chirp along to their favorite song
and when the sun should make it’s entrance
setting fire to the eastern sky
God will smile upon Montgomery
where our dreams reach to the sky

from the civil war
to just where Rosa stood her ground
Montgomery’s streets have often become battle grounds
but time has taught us something
about how to get along
now we hope we’re known for something
not just how we’ve been so wrong

The sun still shines here in Montgomery
Where dreams are still worth fighting for
Our roots are strong here in Montgomery
and our dreams are just as strong

the sun goes down
on big ol southern town
the river whispers secrets no one dares to tell
and the lights are shining through the windows
of the riverboat tonight
I’ll say my prayer on a bended knee
that Montgomery does alright

The sun still shines here in Montgomery
Where dreams are still worth fighting for
Our roots are strong here in Montgomery
and our dreams are just as strong

she’s more than just the spark for the bloody civil war
Like Dr King who showed us what’s worth fighting for
and we can thank good ole hank for the some songs to sing along

The sun still shines here in Montgomery
Where dreams are still worth fighting for
Our roots are strong here in Montgomery
and our dreams are just as strong

we’re not so big but we’re not so small
we won’t apologize for our southern drawl
in fact we’ll slow it down so you can understand
we’re not that place that you see on TV
and we’re really not bad won’t you come and see me
and you can smile upon Montgomery
where your dreams reach to the sky
