Song Of The South

Bob McDill

© Jack And Bill Music, ASCAP

Song song of the south
Sweet potato pie and shut my mouth
Gone gone with the wind
Ain't nobody lookin' back again

Cotton on the roadside cotton in the ditch
We all picked the cotton but we never got rich
Daddy was a veteran a Southern Democrat
They oughta kill a rich man to vote like that

Singin' song song of the south...
[ fiddle ]
Well somebody told us Wall Street fell
But we were so poor that we couldn't tell
Cotton was short and the weeds were tall
But Mr Roosevelt is gonna save us all

Mama got sick and daddy got down
County got the farm and they moved to town
Papa got a job with the TVA
He bought a washin' machine and a Chevrolet

Singin' song song of the south...

Play it
[ fiddle ]
Singin' song song of the south...

Song song of the south
Gone gone with the wind
Song song of the south
(Sweet potato pie and shut my mouth)
Song song of the south
(Sweet potato pie and shut my mouth)
Singin' (song song of the south
Sweet potato pie and shut my mouth
Gone gone with the wind
Ain't nobody lookin' back again
Song song of the south
Sweet potato pie and shut my mouth
Gone gone with the wind
Ain't nobody lookin' back again
Song song of the south
Sweet potato pie and shut my mouth

Down On The River

Robert Byrne - Teddy Gentry - Greg Fowler

© Maypop Music, BMI

Down on the river it's an easy kind of life everybody here's feeling fine
No need to worry or get in a hurry nothing to spend but time
Light up a smoke and tell a few jokes and pass the old jug around
We're gonna get right on a Saturday night when the sun goes down

Down on the river down on the river
Just some old boys a making a lot of noise
Down on the river down on the river down on the river
If anyone calls tell them we're all down on the river

Well we'll go fishing by the light of the moon and bait them hooks by hand
Early in the morning take them off the line fry 'em all up in a pan
We gotta get home while we still got a job or we'll have to answer to the man
And everybody knows we gotta go we'll be back again

Down on the river down on the river...
[ guitar ]
Down on the river down on the river...

High Cotton

Roger Murrah - Scott Anders

© Shobi Music, BMI

We didn't know the times were lean around our house the grass was green
It didn't seem like things were all that bad
I bet we walked a thousand miles chopin' cotton and pushin' plows
And learnin' how to give it all we had

As life went on and years went by I saw the light in daddy's eyes
And felt the love in mama's hands
They kept us warm and kept us fed taught us how to look ahead
Now lookin' back I think I understand

We were walkin' in high cotton old times there are not forgotten
Those fertile fields are never far away
We were walkin' in high cotton old times there are not forgotten
Leavin' home was the hardest thing we ever faced
[ fiddle ]
When Sunday mornings rolled around we dressed up in hand-me-downs
Just in time together with the church
Sometimes I think how long it's been and how it impressed me then
It was the only day my daddy wouldn't work

We were walkin' in high cotton old times there are not forgotten...
We were walkin' in high cotton old times there are not forgotten...
We were walkin' in high cotton old times there are not forgotten...

Ole Baugh Road

Randy Owen

© Maypop Music, BMI

Round ole Baugh Road's a great place for kids to grow
Some grow up and move away most of us decide to stay
Round the ole Baugh Road

Hard working mom and dad gave us the things they never had
In our corner of the world romance was slow for the boys and girls
Round the ole Baugh Road

The neighborhood still looks the same just new kids with the same ole names
My Baugh Road's in a Southern state yours could be anywhere USA
Look around the ole Baugh Road

Round the ole Baugh Road's a great place for kids to grow...

I see the kids on ole Baugh Road I see the glory of the future grow
Look to the heavens and give a shout like my daddy did when he started out

Round the ole Baugh Road's a great place for kids to grow...

Round round round the ole Baugh Road
Round round round round round round round round round the ole Baugh Road
Round round round round round round round round round the ole Baugh Road
Round round round

Borderline

Teddy Gentry - Greg Fowler - Larry Hanson - Virgil Beckham

© Maypop Music, BMI

In a cloud of dust cross Texas south of San Antone
The lawman and the cowboy pushed their horses on
Racin' toward the Rio running out of time
They had to catch the Outlaws before they crossed the borderline

Well the lawman wanted justice the cowboy revenge
They tracked the Outlaws' horses up to the river's edge
And there across the Rio a badge ain't worth a dime
The law was in their own hands once they crossed the borderline

So they ride to the desert wind
Down a dusty trail destiny begins
Heroes never turn or look back
They just ride through the sands of time
On the borderline

In the safety of the badlands the Outlaws stopped their run
The campfire rings with laughter of evil things they've done
How they'd taken all they wanted and killed the cowboy's wife
And knew no one would follow them cross the borderline

The lawman and the cowboys stepped out of the dark
And it was two against the twenty and every bullet found its mark
And so goes the legend that out there in the night
The two still ride together somewhere beyond the borderline

So they ride to the desert wind...
So they ride to the desert wind...
So they ride to the desert wind...

I'm Still Dreamin'

John Dillon - Steve Cash

© Artists Circle Music, BMI

I know people who lose their lover
Turn around and they find another
Fall in love and then they break up
I don't know if I want to wake up

Cause I'm still dreamin' I'm still dreamin' baby
I'm still dreamin' oh oh oh about you

Other women walk right up to me
I hear them talking but it goes right through me
I know it's love that's on the line
But they don't know what's on my mind

Cause I'm still dreamin' I'm still dreamin' baby...

It's like a voice that's always calling
It's like a feelin' that I'm always falling
I close my eyes and all I see is you you you

Cause I'm still dreamin' I'm still dreamin' baby...
I'm still dreamin' I'm still dreamin' baby...

Pete's Music City

Monty Powell

© Waner-Tamerlane Publ, BMI

Well northern Georgia highway 41
Beside the carpet mills and the gas stations
There was a music store slash radio shack
With the sound of dreamers jammin' in the back

Well we rocked all night and we rolled all day
We never bought nothing but we sure did play
The music was loud and the girls were pretty
There was always a magic down at Pete's Music City

Well we had electric guitars just a gathering dust
And a chrome mike stand with just a little bit of rust
And a couple of amps with the volume on ten
And when the last bell ringed that's when the music began

And we rocked all night and we rolled all day...
[ guitar ]
Well the years have been long and they ain't been kind
They say all that's left is the old faded sign
But the music's still ringing loud in my heart
Down at Pete's Music City where I got my start

Well we rocked all night and we rolled all day...

Southern Star

Roger Murrah - Rich Alves - Steve Dean

© Tom Collins Music, BMI

Oh southern star how I wish you would shine
And show me the way to get home

Well I'm blue-collar branded and stuck in a mill
Hhard work is a way of life for me
Well I'm too young to live like I'm over the hills
And too old to be wild and free

My heart is homeward bound
I'm rolling with the feeling and I can't slow down
I need a guiding light
Shining down to lead me through the night
Oh southern star how I wish you would shine
And show me the way to get home
[ guitar ]
Oh hey my DJ friend would you play me one more song
And let my mind just go and drift away
Now we all have a dream and a place where we belong
Somewhere we can go and escape

My heart is homeward bound...
[ guitar ]
Oh southern star how I wish you would shine
And show me the way to get home

If I Had You

Danny Mayo - Kerry Chater

© Acuff-Rose Music, BMI

If I had you we'd run like gypsies in the wind
We'd be lovers and we'd be friends if I had you
If I had you we'd count the stars all one by one
We'd make love till they were gone oh if I had you

You light a fire way down in my soul
The flame keeps growing stronger there ain't no control
And there's nothing no there's nothing
I know there's nothing that I wouldn't do if I had you

If I had you we'd sail the seven seas as one
We'd never say it can't be done I know if I had you

You light a fire way down in my soul...
If I had you

She Can

Steve Seskin - Austin Gardner

© Love This Town Music, ASCAP

She can light a fire under me
Give me all the courage that I need
She can see a side I just can't see she can
She can make me smile when I wanna cry
Find a way to change my state of mind
She can always reach through my disguise she can

When my world gets crazy and I just can't cope
She throws her arms around me and gives me hope
When I got the desire but I got no plans
I need someone to understand oh only she can

She can take the chill out of winter nights
Take away the wrong from what's not right
She can make the darkest hour look bright she can
When I really need to make a stand
But I don't believe in who I am
When I really want to but I just can't she can

When my world gets crazy and I just can't cope...

I try to do for her what she does for me
Cause I want our love to grow
I'm gonna hold on tightly only a fool would let her go

Cause when my world gets crazy and I just can't cope...
Yes she can only she can yes she can oh yes she can

I Showed Her

Teddy Gentry - Greg Fowler - Walt Aldridge

© Tree Publ, BMI

She told me I should straighten up my ways or she'd be walkin' out
But I guess I was just too blind to see or maybe just too proud
So I never thought twice when she loaded up her things and drove away
Cause I knew she'd be back someday I knew she'd be back

Took off my work clothes and left them laying right there on the floor
Cause I knew she'd pick 'em up when she got home like a hundred times before
And just to make it easier for her I left the light on on the porch
Cause I knew she'd be back someday I knew she'd be back

I guess I showed her how much she had to lose
Showed her who was really who
I know she's hurtin' now looks like I showed her

I must have seen the movie of the month a dozen times or more
I watched my favorite team play ball but I never heard a score
Cause the whole time I was listening for the moment when she'd walk through the door
Cause I knew she'd be back someday I know she'll be back

I guess I showed her how much she had to lose...

If I could I show her how much she had to lose
I'd show her I've been hurtin' too
If I could hold her now I'd really show her

Barefootin'

Robert Parker

© Bonatemp Publ, BMI

Everybody get on your feet
You make me nervous when you're in your seat
Take off your shoes and pat your feet
We're doin' a dance that can't be beat

We're barefootin' we're barefootin'
We're barefootin' we're barefootin'

Went to a party the other night
Long tall Sally was out of sight
Threw 'way her wig and her high sneakers too
She's doing a dance without any shoes

She's barefootin' she's barefootin'
She's barefootin' she's barefootin'

Hey little girl with your red dress on
Bet you can barefoot all night long
Take off your shoes and throw 'em away
Come back and get 'em another day

We're barefootin' we're barefootin'
We're barefootin' we're barefootin'

Everybody be barefootin' take your shoes off

Little John Henry he said to Sue
Ïf I barefoot would you barefoot too
Sue told John I'll stir your stew
I was barefootin' ever since I was two

I'm barefootin' we're barefootin'
We're barefootin' we're barefootin'
Barefootin' we're barefootin'
Don't have no shoes on we're barefootin'
We're barefootin' we're barefootin'
We're barefootin' we're barefootin'

Dixie Fire

Jeff Cook - Vern Dant - Hunter Moore

© Big Muddy Music, BMI

I'm not a stranger to passion I've seen a lotta love in my time
I've felt that physical attraction from a touch in the heat of the night
I've been all over this country I've started my share of new flames
But after all is said and done there's only one that remains

Dixie fire burning down in my soul
Dixie fire it never leaves me cold
It took a hometown girl to show me
How cool these hot summer nights can be
Now there's a Dixie fire burning in the heart of me
Burning in the heart of me
[ guitar ]
Searching for some kind of direction looking for a guiding light
Needed to see a lighthouse like a ship on a stormy night
Somehow you heard my music you felt the sadness in me
You took the words that were so cold and added a warm melody

Dixie fire burning down in my soul...

Burn burn burning burn burn burning
Can't you see that I'm burn burn burning
There's a Dixie fire burn burn burning
Don't you know that I'm burn burn burning
Burn burn burning
