Southern Boy

Album: Southern Boy (2016)
  • Southern boy, in your pickup truck
    Seasons change, dashboard stays covered in red clay dust
    Southern boy, you never been scared to fight
    Your family name, there's a lot of things you just don't compromise
    Keep singing them songs
    Keep carrying on, yeah

    Keep stealing those kisses from your southern belle
    Keep loving those Friday nights
    Keep rolling with your buddies, raising a little hell
    Just don't cross the line
    We all know there ain't nothing like the feeling
    The way you grew up, Sunday kneeling
    Like glass bags popping you keep making that noise
    Southern boy

    Southern sky, watching over you
    Looking down on your little town and the hearts that hold your roots
    Southern boy
    When the road starts getting rough
    The wheels you're on will get you home, no matter how deep the mud
    So keeping them songs
    Keep carrying on

    Keep stealing those kisses from your southern belle
    Keep loving those Friday nights
    Keep rolling with your buddies, raising a little hell
    Just don't cross the line
    We all know there ain't nothing like the feeling
    The way you grew up, Sunday kneeling
    Like glass bags popping you keep making that noise
    Southern boy

    Keep telling your story
    So you'll never be gone
    Keep carrying on
    Just keep carrying on

    Keep stealing those kisses from your southern belle
    Keep loving those Friday nights
    Keep rolling with your buddies, raising a little hell
    Just don't cross the line
    We all know there ain't nothing like the feeling
    The way you grew up, Sunday kneeling
    Like glass bags popping you keep making that noise
    Southern boy
    Yeah, good ol' southern boy Writer/s: BERNARD JAMES FREEMAN, BRYAN WILLIAMS, BYRON O. THOMAS, DWAYNE CARTER
