southbound

skynyrd told us many times back in '73
alabama is the only place
where a southern heart should be
you can dream of better times
or you can run for gold
i don't need no cash at all
just remember what they told

ol' neil blames about the southern style
everything seems so slow
but i can understand that way
good things needs time to grow
i'd like to see the cotton fields
i'd love to hunt in the woods
i feel good back home again
don't wanna leave you anymore

i can tell you one more time
i can tell you twice
my heart will still go on for you
the only place were i'll be free

they call me southbound
driving down to new orleans
southbound
looking to the stars so bright
southbound
feel the taste of georgia peaches
southbound
i'm coming back where i belong
sitting by the old fence
looking to the trees
waiting for the morning
and the sky so blue

you can dream of better times
or you can run for gold
i don't need no cash at all
just remember what they told
be a human stay still proud
don't loose your way of life
be a southern girl or a southern man
as long as you're alive
