Send me a pan of corn bread
With some turnip greens on the side
And if you really want to mess with my head
Give me anything southern fried

Give me some faded blue jeans
And a pair of old cowboy boots
And I'm gonna tell you where I come from
Tell you somethin' about my roots

I'm a southern man
I'm a southern man
I'm a southern man
I'm a southern man

Send me a woman to love me
With a lot of meat on her bones
There's something about a big lady
I just can't leave 'em alone

I'd like to take her down to the river
Go skinny dippin' in the night
Ain't nothin' like being with my lady
And makin' love in the pale moon light

'Cause I'm a southern man, ah ah ah
I'm a southern man
I'm a southern man
Southern man
I'm a southern man

Give me that soulful music
It sure makes me feel so nice
So I can do the alligator
And get it on every Saturday night

Give me that Southern Comfort
Give me Annie Greenspring's wine
Take me on down to the bayou
and I'll sure have a real good time

'Cause I'm a southern man
I'm a southern man
I'm a southern man
Southern man

I'm a southern man
I'm a southern man
I'm a southern man
Southern man

I'm a southern man
I'm a southern man
I'm a southern man
Southern man
