  • Oh yeah
    Boots and buckles, red clay and sand
    My point ain't subtle here
    I'm a southern man
    Where the beer seems cooler and the women seem hotter
    Where the world don't seem so damn modern
    And a good ole boy like me still has a chance

    This is where I was born this is where I'll die
    Yeah, this is where I was born and this is where I'll die

    It's all about the south
    Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Carolina
    Don't you wanna get down and dirty
    'Cause, Florida I'm thirsty
    Hit me with your Tennessee whiskey and crank it up loud
    Laid back, you crazy old timer
    Sweet magnolia, dive bars and diners, oh yeah
    Oh, and even if you're up north
    Come on now, come on now, oh
    It's all about the south
    It's all about the south
    It's all about the south

    From daddy's don Williams to mama's patsy Cline oh,
    We're walkin' after midnight" singing Tulsa time, oh, yeah
    Where the beer seems colder and the women seem hotter
    Where the world don't seem so damn modern yeah
    This is where I was born this is where I'll die
    Oh that's right!
    Ooh

    It's all about the south
    Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Carolina
    Don't you wanna get down and dirty
    'Cause, Florida I'm thirsty
    Hit me with your Tennessee whiskey and crank it up loud
    Laid back, you crazy old timer
    Sweet magnolia, dive bars and diners, oh yeah
    Oh, and even if you're up north
    Come on now, come on now, oh
    It's all about the south
    Come on!
    Yeah

    Bring it on down and sing it with me now
    This is where I was born and this is where I'll die
    This is where I was born and this is where I'll die (that's what I'm talkin' about now)
    This is where I was born and this is where I'll die (this is where I'll die)
    This is where I was born and this is where I'll die

    It's all about the south
    Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Carolina
    Don't you wanna get down and dirty
    'Cause, Florida I'm thirsty
    Hit me with your Tennessee whiskey and crank it up loud
    Laid back, you crazy old timer
    Sweet magnolia, dive bars and diners, oh yeah
    Oh, and even if you're up north
    Come on now, come on now, oh
    I said even if you're up north
    Come on now, come on now, oh
    It's all about the south

    This is where I was born and this is where I'll die
    This is where I was born and this is where I'll die
    This is where I was born and this is where I'll die Writer/s: JAREN JOHNSTON
