Southern Comfort Zone

Album: Wheelhouse (2012)
Charted: 54
  • When your wheelhouse is the land of cotton,
    The first time you leave it can be strange, it can be shocking

    Not everybody drives a truck, not everybody drinks sweet tea
    Not everybody owns a gun, wears a ball cap boots and jeans
    Not everybody goes to church or watches every NASCAR race
    Not everybody knows the words to "Ring Of Fire" or "Amazing Grace"

    Oh, Dixie Land,
    I hope you understand
    When I miss my Tennessee home
    And I been away, way too long
    I can't see this world unless I go
    Outside my Southern Comfort zone

    I have walked the streets of Rome, I have been to foreign lands
    I know what it's like to talk and have nobody understand
    I have seen the Eiffel Tower lit up on a Paris night
    I have kissed a West Coast girl underneath the Northern Lights
    I know what it's like to be the only one like me,
    To take a good hard look around and be in the minority

    And I miss my Tennessee home
    I can see the ways that I've grown
    I can't see this world unless I go
    Outside my Southern Comfort zone

    I miss your biscuits and your gravy
    Fireflies dancing in the night
    You have fed me, you have saved me
    Billy Graham and Martha White

    I have since become a drifter
    And I just can't wait to pack
    'Cause I know the route I leave on
    It will always bring me back

    When I miss my Tennessee home
    And I've been away, way too long
    I can't see this world unless I go
    Outside my Southern Comfort zone

    Look away, look away Writer/s: KELLEY LOVELACE
