Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers — Southern Accents lyrics

There's a southern accent
Where I come from
The young 'uns call it country
The yankees call it dumb
I got my own way of talking
But everything gets done
With a southern accent
Where I come from

Now that drunk tank in Atlanta
Is just a motel room to me
Think I might go work Orlando
If them orange groves don't freeze
Got my own way of working
But everything is run
With a southern accent
Where I come from

For just a minute there I was dreaming
For just a minute it was all so real
For just a minute
She was standing there with me

There's a dream I keep having
Where my mama comes to me
And kneels down over by the window
And says a prayer for me
Got my own way of praying
But everything one's begun
With a southern accent
Where I come from

Got my own way of living
But everything is done
With a southern accent
Where I come from
