INTRO:            
VERSE 1: 
I grew up a long way from here 
I slept with the lights on for fifteen years 
And Sabbath kept me home on Friday Nights 
And Daddy sang me Rogers 
Just to make everything all right 
My town wasnt even on the map 
You could pass right through it in twenty seconds flat 
But the south was like the whole world to me 
It wasn't easy to stay but it was harder to leave 
Yeah I was a south bound child 
Yeah i had a small town life 
But I turned out all right in the North 
Living that Southern kind of life 
INSTR:        
VERSE 2: 
Old friends and Bibles filled the house 
No room for money and no money anyhow 
Deprived was something we always heard 
But to me and my brother it was just another word 
I used to think the north was the end 
Cos people go there and they dont come back again 
But my fathers father was a man of the sea 
He lived the southern life two blocks away from me 
Yeah I was a south bound child 
Yeah i had a small town life 
But I turned out all right in the North 
Living that Southern kind of life 
Yeah I was a south bound child 
Yeah i had a small town life 
But I turned out all right in the North 
Living that Southern kind of life
