Down South

Sweet tea, barbecues, and football

Pickup trucks, county fairs, and folks sayin' y'all

The sweet taste of pecan pie in your mouth

This is how we do it down South


Ride in a brand new Ferrari?

No thanks

I'd rather drive a Chevy through the mud to the nearest lake

How 'bout shopping in the mall?

No thanks

I'm ready to go fishin' down at the river bank


The hot Florida sun beats down on 50 miles of open land

My feet sink into the white, hot sand

Fishin' for only the best trout

This is how we do it down South


Feelin' alive, feelin' free

There's no place I'd rather be

You may have heard it by word of mouth

This is how we do it down South
