The Call of the South Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
A gentle voice is calling me
I hear it night and day
It seems to whisper tenderly
You should be on your way
I'm going back without a doubt
To where my heart belongs
The land that Jolson sings about
In all his "Mammy" songs
Verse 2
All night long your banjos ring in my ear
And I can hear the call of the Southland
Verse 3
Seem to say it's just the time of the year
Come on and hear the call of the South
Verse 4
I'll be so happy when I open the gate
To see my sweetie there who promised to wait
And then when I deliver
The kiss I'm gonna give 'er
Trouble will drown way down in the Swanee River
Verse 5
I must go back to somebody I've missed
I can't resist the call of the South
