Kasey Chambers — Southern Kind Of Life lyrics

I grew up along way from here
I slept with the lights on for fifteen years
And sabbath kept me home on friday nights
And daddy sang me rodgers
Just to make everything alright
My town wasn't even on the map
You could pass right through it in twenty seconds flat
But the south was like the whole world to me
It wasn't easy to stay but it was harder to leave



Yeah I was a south bound child
Yeah I had a small town life
But I turned out alright in the north
Livin' that southern kind of life



Old friends and bibles filled the house
No room for money and no money anyhow
Deprived was something we always heard
But to me and my brother it was just another word



I use to think the north was the end
Cause people go there and they don't come back again
But my father's father was a man of the sea
He lived a southern life two blocks away from me



Yeah I was a south bound child
Yeah I had a small town life
But I turned out alright in the north
Livin' that southern kind of life



Yeah I was a south bound child
Yeah I had a small town life
But I turned out alright in the north
Livin' that southern kind of life
