Austin Cunningham — Southern Side Of Town lyrics

In the mud on my workboots is the way where I come from
I may talk a little slower than you
That don't make me dumb
I fix your cars and I build your homes til my hands are cracked and calloused
Some folks don't understand
What Im about and who I am

I was born on the southern side of the river
Where a handshake is your contract, your name means everything
I was raised on a good books promise and the pride my daddy taught me
Where you work hard for a livin
Yeah that's always been a given
don't you run her down, I'll stand my ground on the southern side of town

I don't ask for many favors
I earned every dime I make
And I don't feel like Ive sold my soul at the end of a long hard day
I just bring my tired back and worn out dreams home to my woman
She never does complain
But I know she feels the same

I was born on the southern side of the river
Where a handshake is your contract, your name means everything
I was raised on a good books promise and the manners my mama taught me
Where old ways are not forsaken
And there's still a few things sacred
I'll live and die and I wont deny the southern side of town

Yeah sometimes I get to dreamin beyond these county lines
Hey but the deepest voice within me draws me back every time

I was raised on a good books promise and the pride my daddy taught me
Where you work hard for a livin
Yeah that's always been a given
I'll live and die and I wont deny the southern side of town
Where old ways are not forsaken
And there's still a few things sacred
So don't you run her down,
Cause I stand my ground on the southern side of town

Im from the southern side of town

God bless the southern side of town
