PETTY, Tom


Southern Accents

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 gets done, with a southern accent

Where I come from

Now that drunk tank in Atlanta's

Just a motel room to me

Think I might go work Orlando

If them orange groves don't freeze

I 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 dreaming

For just a minute it was all so real

For just a minute she was standing there, with me

There's a dream I keep having

Where my mama comes to me

And kneels down over by the window

And says a prayer for me

Got my own way of prayin'

But everyone's begun

With a southern accent

Where I come from

I got my own way of livin'

But everything gets done

With a southern accent

Where I come from
