Maybe he's in Texas, maybe this town
Maybe Oklahoma plowin' up some ground
Southern Carolina, somewhere on the coast,
Maybe Alabama drivin' through Montgomery right now.
There's somethin' 'bout a boy from the South.

Maybe he's in Florida, somewhere in the pines,
Maybe on the Delta throwin' out a line,
Maybe he's in Georgia, starin' at the stars,
Maybe Tennessee pickin' on a guitar right now.
There's somethin' 'bout a boy from the South

Yeah, the first time I felt it I was only 16,
And he kissed me underneath the chinaberry tree.
Said "Goodnight darlin'," with a sweet southern drawl.
Man, I think I might just have to love them all
The boys from the South.

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Maybe in Kentucky, workin' in the mines.
Maybe down in Little Rock, just to pass the time.
Maybe he's somewhere in New Orleans,
Livin' it up in the Big Easy right now.
There's somethin' 'bout a boy from the South.

Yeah, the first time I felt it I was only 16,
And he kissed me underneath the chinaberry tree.
Said "Goodnight darlin'," with a sweet southern drawl.
Man, I think I might just have to love them all
The boys from the South.

Yeah, yeah, yeah

Maybe he's in Texas, maybe this town.
My boys from the South.

Ooh, ooh, ooh
