Alan Jackson's "Chattahoochee" is a song that every country fan knows by heart.

Georgia native Alan Jackson‘s “Chattahoochee” was released in May 1993 as the third single from his album A Lot About Livin’ (And a Little ’bout Love). The tune was written by Alan Jackson and Jim McBride and captures coming of age in a small town – which struck a chord with country music fans.

“Chattahoochee” Lyrics

Way down yonder on the Chattahoochee
It gets hotter than a hoochie coochie
We laid rubber on the Georgia asphalt
We got a little crazy but we never got caught

Down by the river on a Friday night
A pyramid of cans in the pale moonlight
Talking ’bout cars and dreaming ’bout women
Never had a plan just a livin’ for the minute
Yeah way down yonder on the Chattahoochee
Never knew how much that muddy water meant to me
But I learned how to swim and I learned who I was
A lot about livin’ and a little ’bout love

Well we fogged up the windows in my old Chevy
I was willing but she wasn’t ready
So I settled for a burger and a grape snow cone
Dropped her off early but I didn’t go home

Down by the river on a Friday night
A pyramid of cans in the pale moonlight
Talking ’bout cars and dreaming ’bout women
Never had a plan just a livin’ for the minute
Yeah way down yonder on the Chattahoochee
Never knew how much that muddy water meant to me
But I learned how to swim and I learned who I was
A lot about livin’ and a little ’bout love

Yeah, way down yonder on the Chattahochee
Never knew how much that muddy water meant to me
But I learned how to swim and I learned who I was
A lot about livin’ and a little ’bout love.

A lot about livin’ and a little ’bout love.

By the way, the Chattahoochee River forms part of the border between Georgia and Alabama. The more you know…
