Southern Drawl

Tell us ‘bout your heartache
Sweet country girl
We’ve heard it all before
In your Southern Drawl
Fame and fortune
Have reached you early
Aged 22, don’t encourage apathy
Aged 22, don’t encourage apathy

Girls our age
Are easily influenced
Boys are prominent
But we’re not desperate
Life is longer now
Than olden days
We’ll be working up until a
Ripe golden age
We’ll be working up until a
Ripe golden age

Don’t get me wrong
Love is a song for everyone
I’ve loved and lost
But know there are other things going on

My mother married aged 24
Never a cross word in thirty years or more
They had their reasons to marry so young
She was 28 when they had their son
She was 28 when they had their son

Don’t get me wrong
Love is a song for everyone
I’ve loved and lost
But know there are other things going on

[Instrumental]

Don’t get me wrong
Love is a song for everyone
I’ve loved and lost
But know there are other things going on
Address locations
War and peace
Try to understand the economy
We can’t do more than the tabloids
But please, please, please sing about
Something other than boys…
