Southern Accents Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
There's a southern accent, where I come from
The young 'uns call it country
The yankees call it dumb
I got my own way of talkin'
But everything gets done, with a southern accent
Where I come from
Verse 2
Now that drunk tank in Atlanta's
Just a motel room to me
Think I might go work Orlando
If them orange groves don't freeze
I got my own way of workin'
But everything is run, with a southern accent
Where I come from --
Verse 3
For just a minute there I was dreaming
For just a minute it was all so real
For just a minute she was standing there, with me
Verse 4
There's a dream I keep having
Where my mama comes to me
And kneels down over by the window
And says a prayer for me
Got my own way of prayin'
But everyone's begun
With a southern accent
Where I come from --
Verse 5
I got my own way of livin'
But everything gets done
With a southern accent
Where I come from
