ok, this is for Bleu Edmondson's song, "Southland". i saw them last night,
and what a suprise, his cd's do him and his band NO justice,
hose guys kicked the place in the teeth. anyways, here it is.......
the trick with this one is for each chord shown, hit that chord with a quick
downstroke, you'll have
to listen to the cd for rhythm,
(EE)A.M. on Sunday,(AA)
(EE)and I'm walkin real slow.(AA)
(EE)Keepin time with the sunshine,(AA)
(EE)I got no real place to go.(AA)
(EE)And it's cold down here,(AA)
(EE)But I can't complain.(AA)
(EE)Standin in the breeze of a(AA)
(n.c.)Slow movin train,
In the southland.(EE AA EE AA EE AA)
When that man from Alabam'
Told me where he'd been,
He said he'd gone all around the world
Til he made it back home again.
He said I'll tell you somethin, son,
As sure as here I stand,
Said I don't know much, but I know this
The lord smiles on dixie land.
(E A B)Keep on (A)truckin kentucky mile(E)
(E A B)Fall in (A)love with a delta smile(E)
(E A B)Sweet georgia (A)peach is gonna gimme some(E)
(E A B)Slam down that (A)hammer, boy, (B)and watch me (A)run,
(n.c.)Through the southland.
Now don't fall in love
Cause you know i got a ramblin way
I blame it on the street survivors
Them boys from fla
So watch your feet pretty momma,
See if they shuffle around
Come get real close to me
I'll tell ya what's goin down
In the southland.
Hey hey in the southland
Now just north of my hometown
I got some friends you see
Them boys from oklahoma
Gettin high on southern reverie
Keep the campfires burnin
Don't worry if i'm not there
I come creepin up quick, with a smile on my face
Baby's got pine needles in her hair
That's how we do it in the southland
Now everybody get up, stand up
Get up get up in the southland
Everybody get up
Proud people proud people in the southland
Won't ya come on take a ride
Momma's in the kitchen,
Daddy's in the field, we aint got nothin to hide
In the southland....
