Southern Accents Lyrics

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 is done, with a southern accent Where I come from

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

I got my own way of working
When everything is wrong
With a southern accent
Where I come from

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

There's a dream I keep having
Where my mama comes to me
And she kneels down over by the window
And says a prayer for me
I got my own way of prayin'
But everyone's begun
With a southern accent
Where I come from

We have our own way of livin'
But everything is done
With a southern accent
Where I come from
