i’ll take the south lyrics – cleo brown

you take the east,
take the west,
take the north,
i’ll take the south!

you take the alps,
take paree,
as for me,
brother, i’ll take the south!

now, whether it’s virginia, tennessee,
or sunny caroline,
anyplace is heaven down below that old mason-dixie line!

you take the east,
take the west,
take the north,
i’ll take the south!

you take the east,
take the west,
take the north,
but, babe, i’ll take the south!

you take the alps,
take paree,
as for me,
i’ll take the south!

’cause every little swallow in the tree
has packed their nest and gone;
you can bet your life,
i’m gonna follow that swallow from now on!

you take the east,
take the west,
take the north,
baby, but give me the south!
