Knoxville reporter walks streets of Tuscaloosa to quiz Alabama fans on 'Dixieland Delight' lyrics
Alabama fans love singing the song “Dixieland Delight” by a band named, well… Alabama. However, the Bama fans change the lyrics a bit to call out some of their biggest rivals.
The song actually mentions Tennessee, though. A scan of the lyrics shows that the word “Tennessee” is mentioned 4 times.
Thus, Knoxville reporter Caleb Noe walked the streets of Tuscaloosa with a mission — find out why Alabama fans love to sing a song about Tennessee. The results, which you can see in the segment below, are great:
