Southern State Of Mind

Album: Charleston, SC 1966 (2010)
  • Rucker tries to show some Southern manners in this song as he travels around the country. "I could be anywhere, in my heart I'm always there. Where they drink sweet tea and teach you how to be polite," he sings. However, the South Carolina native finds his regional customs sometime don't align with life in New York or California.
