"All Summer Long" was nominated for a 2009 Grammy Award in the Best Male Pop Vocal Performance category. 
 
 
It was 1989, my thoughts were short my hair was long 
Caught somewhere between a boy and man 
She was seventeen and she was far from in-between 
It was summertime in Northern Michigan 
Ahh Ahh Ahh 
Ahh Ahh Ahh 
 
Splashing through the sand bar 
Talking by the campfire 
It's the simple things in life, like when and where 
We didn't have no internet 
But man I never will forget 
The way the moonlight shined upon her hair 
 
[Chorus:] 
And we were trying different things 
We were smoking funny things 
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song 
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking 'bout tomorrow 
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long 
Singing Sweet home Alabama all summer long 
 
Catching Walleye from the dock 
Watching the waves roll off the rocks 
She'll forever hold a spot inside my soul 
We'd blister in the sun 
We couldn't wait for night to come 
To hit that sand and play some rock and roll 
 
While we were trying different things 
And we were smoking funny things 
Making love out by the lake to our favorite song 
Sipping whiskey out the bottle, not thinking 'bout tomorrow 
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long 
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long 
 
Now nothing seems as strange as when the leaves began to change 
Or how we thought those days would never end 
Sometimes I'll hear that song and I'll start to sing along 
And think man I'd love to see that girl again 
 
[Repeat Chorus x2] 
 
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long 
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long 
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long 
Singing Sweet Home Alabama all summer long
