Southern Breeze

I sing all day

To my Ida May

Chopping 'em them down

In timber town


The northern lights

Go on all night

Putting on a show

But I'm just waiting

To take my leave

On the tail of a

Southern breeze


The sun will thaw

What the night did freeze

I'll be back

On a Southern breeze


Miles of cold

But these old boots

Don't fret the snow

Soon as the sunrise

Shakes the trees

I'll be back

With a Southern breeze


She got grits and gravy

Cookin' up a storm

Put a candle in the window

Keep the home fire warm


The sun will thaw

What the night did freeze

I'll be back

On a Southern breeze
