southern life

If you want a glimpse of Southern life, Come close and walk with me; I'll tell you all the simple things, That you are sure to see. You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees, Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees; Caterpillars on the step, Wooden porches cleanly swept; Watermelons on the vine,
Strong majestic Georgia pines
Rocking chairs and front yard swings
Junebugs flying on a string
Turnip greens and hotcornbread,Coleslaw and barbecue Fried okra, fried corn,fried green tomatoes, Fried pies and pickles too. There's ice cold tea that 's syrupy sweet, And cool, green grass beneath your feet;Catfish nipping in the lake, And fresh young boys on the make. You'll see all these things And much, much more, In a way of life, that I adore.
