Southern Boy

Well it's easy for a country boy
to be misunderstood
When the honky tonks are jumping
and the girls are looking good
Yeah, I get excited and some
people think I'm rude
It's the way my daddy raised
me it's my rebel attitude

I'm a southern boy
Southern born and bred
I've got Sweet Home Alabama
buzzing all around in my head
I'm right at home in Georgia
or down in Caroline
Yeah I'd be happy anywhere
below that Mason-Dixon line

A working and a sweating
'til I hear that whistle blow
Country rock a cooking
on my pick-up radio
I rush home for a shower
and put on my dancing shoes
I get the Friday fever and
the Sunday morning blues

I'm a southern boy
I like a rowdy crowd
Put Bocephus on the jukebox and
turn that sucker way up loud
Don't need a reservation
We're just a-having fun
Yeah it's party time in Dixie
Ya'll just come on down
and get ya some

From Rockingham to Birmingham
Mobile to New Orleans
Jacksonville to Copper Hill
Pike to Bowling Green
Layfayette to Somerset
Boone to Rocky Mount
If you don't live in Dixie then
You're only camping out

I'm a southern boy
I say my sirs and m'ams
I'm kinda rough around the edges
but I'm mighty proud of who I am
Roll on Mississippi
rock on Tennessee
If it was good enough for Elvis
you know it's good enough for me

I said, if it was
good enough for Elvis
you know it's good enough for me
Well if the King was
crazy 'bout it then
you know it's good enough for me
