southern girl lyrics – amos lee

farewell my sweet
well the time that was coming
the road has begun to move beneath my feet
good things come to an end
well i hope through the pain
the heartache and strain we can still remain friends

something about a southern girl
make me feel right
in a mississippi morning
she’s an angel in flight
in a blink of an eye
she’ll be out of your sight
something about a southern girl

you’re a soft melody
well i swear that i heard
from a lost mockingbird stuck up in a tree
we got a lot going on
even though i’m not here
please don’t shed any tears for me day when i’m gone

something about a southern girl
make me feel right
in a mississippi morning
she’s an angel in flight
in a blink of an eye
she’ll be out of your sight
something about a southern girl

i never meant to leave you lonely
it was only in your mind
girl, i never meant to leave you lonely
it was only a matter of time

something about a southern girl
make me feel right
in a mississippi morning
she’s an angel in flight
in a blink of an eye
she’ll be out of your sight
something about a southern
something about a southern girl
