Head South

Head south in the morning, just take off with no warning

Tell your boss you need a change of scene

Head south if you're feeling your homesick heart is reeling

And get yourself a bowl of butterbeans

Anywhere east of the Rio Grande

gets you a cane pole in your hand

fry a mess of fish up on the bank

Cross that Mason-Dixon line, leave your cares and worries behind

sit out under a willow tree and fan

Head south, are you listening

you don't know what you're missing

from Virginia shores to the Gulf of Mexico

Head south to Kentucky, Blue Ridge Mountains if you're lucky

from the Florida Keys to the banks of the Ohio

You will feel the heart of Texas swing Dixieland down in New Orleans

Delta blues on the side of the riverbank

Country soul down in Tennessee

and that mountain music's all right by me

hot jambalaya you're in the land of Hank

Head south God almighty

ain't the thought of it exciting

crab cakes cornbread crawfish and barbeque

Head south, horn of plenty, for the few and the many

all the south is missing man is you
