Jim Ed Brown – Southern Loving Lyrics

I’ve been loved in Cincinnati, Evansville and in St. Paul
All the gals were pretty and I ain’t tryin’ to find no fault
There’s a gal in the Windy City I can’t forget about
But if you want to love like you ain’t had love go south, south, south
Southern loving, take that southern loving every time

There’s a sweet thing in Augusta got the softest lips of all
When she kisses on you you just climb right up the wall
And there’s a nurse I know in Memphis got love for a middle name
If she ever gets her hands on you it’s shame, shame, shame
Southern loving, take that southern loving every time

Now everybody’s heard about that southern hospitality
But that ain’t why the sunny south has got a hold on me

There’s a teacher down in Dallas I ain’t seen in quite some time
Just to think about her burns a hole right through my mind
And there’s a gal in Bogalusa just can’t love enough
I’ll tell you about her with just three words she’s tough, tough, tough
Southern loving, take that southern loving every time

Now everybody’s heard about that southern hospitality
But that ain’t why the sunny south has got it’s hold on me

Southern loving, take that southern loving every time
It’s southern loving, take that southern loving every time…
