Deep South

Album: Deep South (2017)
  • You say you're from a planet where the tea ain't sweet
    You've never seen a chicken that's fried
    You've never been up in a big ol' live oak tree
    You've never heard of Charlie Pride
    I'm feelin' sorry for you 'cause you've been missin' out
    You made me realize how good my life is

    Thank the Lord I'm from the Deep South
    Let me take you there
    Screamin' down a backroad like we don't care
    I'm from the Deep South
    We ain't meanin' no harm
    Me and my baby makin' out in the barn
    We ain't got much of nothin' but we sure is proud
    Y'all better listen up you heard it straight from my mouth
    I'm from the Deep South
    I'm from the Deep South

    Down in the land of cotton in a front porch swing
    That's where momma likes to shuck her corn
    And I'll sit out there with her and sing her a tune
    Playing on my old guitar
    I'm in the church house every Sunday in the same ol' pew
    After that we'll go and eat my favorite barbeque

    I'm from the Deep South
    Let me take you there
    Screamin' down a backroad like we don't care
    I'm from the Deep South
    We ain't meanin' no harm
    Me and my baby makin' out in the barn
    We ain't got much of nothin' but we sure is proud
    Y'all better listen up you heard it straight from my mouth
    I'm from the Deep South, yeah
    I'm from the Deep South, yeah

    I'll get all dress up and we'll go out on the town
    I'm steppin' in my cowboy boots
    We'll come back to the country and kick it back
    Sit and talk about my roots
    There's been seven generations livin' life on this land
    I thank my lucky stars that I was born a southern man

    I'm from the Deep South
    Let me take you there
    Screamin' down a backroad like we don't care
    I'm from the Deep South
    We ain't meanin' no harm
    Me and my baby makin' out in the barn
    We ain't got much of nothin' but we sure is proud
    Y'all better listen up you heard it straight from my mouth
    I'm from the Deep South, yeah
    I'm from the Deep South, uh huh
