The North Won The War Again Last Night

Song Author Cal Smith Performer: Cal Smith Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]Bus station in Atlanta 6:[C7]40 in the evening
She was [F]standing cold and all [C]alone
I ask where she was going but [E7]she had no way of knowing
[D7]Cause she was broke and long way from [G7]home   

[C]Straight from New York City she was [C7]young thin and pretty
[F]She belonged in a fashion maga[C]zine
I said [F]stay with me till morning
I've got a [C]bed to keep you [F]warm in
We [C]call it southern [G7]hospitali[C]ty  

[G7]Lying in the stillness [F]there was no blue or [C]gray
[G7]Only sweet surrender in the [F]shadows where we [C]la--[G7]y   
[F]She held me [G7]close and loved this [E7]southern boy just [C]right
And the [D7]north won the [G7]war again last [C]night

Morning's all around me my [C7]arms are all around her
She's [F]sleeping Lord and she looks so [C]fine
Between the shades of last night and [E7]this mornings daylight
[D7]We found love's Mason Dixon [G7]line   

[C]And in her arms I found that [C7]love isn't north or south
It [F]isn't how you say the things you [C]say  
New York [F]City or Atlanta [C]Cleveland or [F]Savanna
She's [C]taken all the [G7]boundaries [C]away

[G7]Lying in the stillness [F]there was no blue or [C]gray
[G7]Only sweet surrender in the [F]shadows where we [C]la--[G7]y   
[F]She held me [G7]close and loved this [E7]southern boy just [C]right
And the [D7]north won the [G7]war again last [C]night

Bus station in Atlanta 6:40 in the evening
She was standing cold and all alone
I ask where she was going but she had no way of knowing
Cause she was broke and long way from home

Straight from New York City she was young thin and pretty
She belonged in a fashion magazine
I said stay with me till morning
I've got a bed to keep you warm in
We call it southern hospitality

Lying in the stillness there was no blue or gray
Only sweet surrender in the shadows where we la--y
She held me close and loved this southern boy just right
And the north won the war again last night

Morning's all around me my arms are all around her
She's sleeping Lord and she looks so fine
Between the shades of last night and this mornings daylight
We found love's Mason Dixon line

And in her arms I found that love isn't north or south
It isn't how you say the things you say
New York City or Atlanta Cleveland or Savanna
She's taken all the boundaries away

Lying in the stillness there was no blue or gray
Only sweet surrender in the shadows where we la--y
She held me close and loved this southern boy just right
And the north won the war again last night
