When I watch the Hart of Dixie and see the bar/restaurant named “Rammer Jammer,” I keep wondering if the name really has something to do with Alabama. Sure enough, the University of Alabama has something called the “Rammer Jammer Cheer” as their school fight song. Per this article it has lyrics that go like this:
“Hey, Clemson (or another vanquished foe). Hey, Clemson.
We just beat the hell out of you.
Rammer jammer, yellow hammer,
Give ’em hell, Alabama.”
As you can imagine from reading that, you have to have a bit of an accent to get rammer jammer, yellow hammer, and Alabama (Al-a-bam-er) to rhyme. Per Wikipedia, “the lyrics originate from The Rammer-Jammer, a student magazine in the 1920s, and the yellowhammer, Alabama's state bird.”
So, if you ever wondered if the name Rammer Jammer on the Hart of Dixie really originated from the University of Alabama fight song, the answer is yes.
