Song Of The South
recorded by Alabama
written by Bob McDill

G     D7
Song  song of the South
Sweet potato pie and shut my mouth
G     D7
Gone  gone with the wind
Ain't nobody looking back again
G                       D7
Cotton on the roadside  cotton in the ditch
We all picked cotton but we never got rich
G                   D7
Daddy was a veteran southern democrat
They oughta get a rich man to vote like that

Repeat #1
     G                     D7
Well somebody told us that Wall Street fell
But we were so poor we couldn't tell
G                        D7
Cotton was short and the weeds were tall
But Mr. Roosevelt was gonna save us all
     G                  D7
Well momma got sick and daddy got down
The county got the farm and we moved to town
G                       D7
Papa got a job with the TVA
He bought a washing machine and then a Chevrolet
Repeat #1
