South

Song Author Bobby Russell Performer: Roger Miller Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]Hot afternoon sometime in June
Sitting on the front porch [F]waiting on the moon
Talking to my neighbor next [C]door ain´t never ever [G7]very much fun
[C]Go get my car and my guitar ride through town with the [F]top down
Maybe I could buy me some [C]beer run out and look at the [G7]farms

And they call it the [F]south [G7]it´s the land of the [C]free
It lost the [G7]only war it ever fought in histo[C]ry  
But I love the [F]south [G7]it´s the land of the [C]free
It´s the land of [F]hush your mouth and [G7]Joe South
And that´s home to [C]me  

She was born in ´52 she finished in a Missis[F]sippi school
And something about her [C]smile that turns you [G7]on   
She´s [C]different like another world
And you can tell she´s not a [F]New York girl
And something about her [C]kiss that takes you [G7]home   

But she was born in the [F]south [G7]Memphis Tennes[C]see  
She was [G7]rich in looks from a poor Memphis [C]family
But she will stay in the [F]south [G7]it´s the land of the [C]free
It´s the land of [F]hush your mouth and [G7]Joe South
And that´s home to [C]me  

California I love you your hills are high and your [F]oceans blue
In LA there´s always [C]something to do and you´re [G7]never alone
But [C]I like fall and I like spring I love snow and I [F]love rain
And there´s something about [C]LA I can´t call [G7]home   

I guess I´ll stay in the [F]south [G7]it´s the land of the [C]free
It lost the [G7]only war it ever fought in histo[C]ry  
But I love the [F]south [G7]it´s the land of the [C]free
It´s the land of [F]hush your mouth [G7]Joe South
And that´s home to [C]me  

And they call it the [F]south [G7]it´s the land of the [C]free
It lost the [G7]only war it ever fought in histo[C]ry  


Hot afternoon sometime in June
Sitting on the front porch waiting on the moon
Talking to my neighbor next door ain´t never ever very much fun
Go get my car and my guitar ride through town with the top down
Maybe I could buy me some beer run out and look at the farms

And they call it the south it´s the land of the free
It lost the only war it ever fought in history
But I love the south it´s the land of the free
It´s the land of hush your mouth and Joe South
And that´s home to me

She was born in ´52 she finished in a Mississippi school
And something about her smile that turns you on
She´s different like another world
And you can tell she´s not a New York girl
And something about her kiss that takes you home

But she was born in the south Memphis Tennessee
She was rich in looks from a poor Memphis family
But she will stay in the south it´s the land of the free
It´s the land of hush your mouth and Joe South
And that´s home to me

California I love you your hills are high and your oceans blue
In LA there´s always something to do and you´re never alone
But I like fall and I like spring I love snow and I love rain
And there´s something about LA I can´t call home

I guess I´ll stay in the south it´s the land of the free
It lost the only war it ever fought in history
But I love the south it´s the land of the free
It´s the land of hush your mouth Joe South
And that´s home to me

And they call it the south it´s the land of the free
It lost the only war it ever fought in history
