  • Now I ain't sayin' them LA ladies don't know what they're doin'
    And I been in love with New York City a time or two
    I had some Seattle coffee, some Chicago wind
    Some Kansas wheat fields I'd love to see again
    But the fireflies play where the cattails grow
    And them southern girls, they talk nice and slow with

    Kisses sweeter than Tupelo honey
    Little bit crazy like New Orleans
    Memphis blue and Daytona sunny
    Soft as cotton in some cut-off jeans
    Don't you know,
    Ain't nothing in the whole wide world
    Like a southern girl

    (Southern girl rock my world)
    (Hazel eyes and golden curls)
    (Put on a country song)
    (Will dance all night long)

    A southern girl's mama probably taught her how a lady should act
    But a southern girl's probably got a barn somewhere reared out back
    She'll get a little hay in her hair, her thighs in the mud
    She's been caught in the rain, and washed in the blood
    Likes jiggers in her coke, takes a little sip,
    Comes over to me with them sunburned lips and them

    Kisses sweeter than Tupelo honey
    Little bit crazy like New Orleans
    Memphis blue and Daytona sunny
    Soft as cotton in some cut-off jeans
    Don't you know,
    Ain't nothing in the whole wide world
    Like a southern girl

    (Southern girl rock my world)
    (Hazel eyes and golden curls)
    (Put on a country song)
    (Will dance all night long)

    If you've ever seen savannah heat up when the stars come out
    Well then fellows come on, you know what I'm talkin' about

    Kisses sweeter than Tupelo honey
    Little bit crazy like New Orleans
    Memphis blue and Daytona sunny
    Soft as cotton in some cut-off jeans
    Don't you know,
    Ain't nothing in the whole wide world
    Like a southern girl

    (Southern girl rock my world)
    (Put on a country song)

    (Southern girl rock my world)
    (Hazel eyes and golden curls)
    (Will dance all night long)

    (Southern girl rock my world)
    (Hazel eyes and golden curls)
    (Put on a country song)
    (Will dance all night long)

    (Southern girl rock my world)
    (Hazel eyes and golden curls)
    (Put on a country song)
    (Will dance all night long)

    (Southern girl rock my world)
    (Hazel eyes and golden curls)
    (Put on a country song)

  • Camille from Toronto, OhThis is a great tune by Tim McGraw, probably my favorite since he came out with "Southern Voice", and that was in 2009. Even tho I'm not a southern girl, I like its sound and the lyrics. I get very weary, though, of Tim McGraw's videos; just the same thing over and over and over, Tim in concert... c'mon Tim, you can get more creative than that.
