Southern Rose (Redux) (Official Lyrics)

 

Tour bus left Savannah

Headin’ for Texarkana

Through the heart of ‘Ole Dixie’

Only stopped to buy some good Southern whiskey

 

Over the Mississippi

Passed through Vicksburg, passed around that whiskey

Wanted to stop in Ole Tallula

But we passed right on through ya

 

Travelin’ down those Southern roads

Found me a Southern Rose

Down those hot, damp, sweaty roads

Who would’ve thought, who would’ve known

 

Travelin’ down those Southern roads

Found me a Southern Rose

Down those hot, damp, sweaty roads

A soft, sweet smellin’ Southern rose

 

Pulled in a juke joint diner

South of Shreveport, south of the line yea

Slingin’ slop and pushin’ beer

Was the sweetest little thing I’ve seen ‘round here

 

Dark long hair and big blue eyes

With a kisser that would only make ya smile

Talked like an angel, walked like a demon

The kinda woman that is totally worth keeping

 

 

 

Travelin’ down those Southern roads

Found me a Southern Rose

Down those hot, damp, sweaty roads

Who would’ve thought, who would’ve known

 

Travelin’ down those Southern roads

Found me a Southern Rose

Down those hot, damp, sweaty roads

A soft, sweet smellin’ Southern rose

 

Oh … Southern rose….

Oh … Southern rose….

Oh … Southern rose….

Oh … Southern rose….

 

Got out the boys in the band

Played a serenade from Avenue Grand

Took some time for her to send me a sign

Took even longer to persuade her to be mine

 

Billy, Joe, and daddy, too

Came by and warned me I better be true

Mama came out to wave the bus goodbye

Promised we’d be back around by and by

 

Travelin’ down those Southern roads

Found me a Southern Rose

Down those hot, damp, sweaty roads

Who would’ve thought, who would’ve known

 

 

 

 

Travelin’ down those Southern roads

Found me a Southern Rose

Down those hot, damp, sweaty roads

A soft, sweet smellin’ Southern rose
