The South; known for its women and sweet tea
Birthplace of my family and others
Some have their thoughts but the south is for me

Nothing is better than afternoon tea
Sitting on the back porch with one’s mother
We are gathered with our family tree

The women get their Vitamin D (sun)
But make sure to watch out for their brothers
Some have their thoughts but the south is for me

You can do anything, even go ski
Family dinner with the Caruthers
Have a fun adventure in the gulf “sea”

The South is like its own little country
Nothing is like those painted white shutters
Some have their thoughts but the south is for me

Living in the great old southern Dixie
A state within the south is Tennessee
Obviously there are many others
Some have their thoughts but the south is for me
