Southern Accents Lyrics

by Johnny Cash

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 was just a motel room to me
I think I might go work Orlando if them orange groves don't freeze
I've got my own way of workin'
But everything is run, with a southern accent, where I come from

For just a minute there I was dreamin'
For just a minute it was all so real
For just a minute she was standin' there, with me

There's a dream that I keep havin' 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'
And everyone's begun with a southern accent, where I come from

We have our own way of livin'
And everything is done with a southern accent, where I come from
