Chorus
Song, song of the south.
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth.
Gone, gone with the wind.
There aint nobody looking back again.

Cotton on the roadside, cotton in the ditch.
We all picked the cotton but we never got rich.
Daddy was a veteran, a southern democrat.
They oughta get a rich man to vote like that.

Sing it...
Song, song of the south.
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth.
Gone, gone with the wind.
There aint nobody looking back again.

Well somebody told us wall street fell
But we were so poor that we couldnt tell.
Cotton was short and the weeds were tall
But mr. roosevelts a gonna save us all.

Well momma got sick and daddy got down.
The county got the farm and they moved to town.
Pappa got a job with the tva
He bought a washing machine and then a chevrolet.

Sing it...
Song, song of the south.
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth.
Gone, gone with the wind.
There aint nobody looking back again.

Song, song of the south...
Gone, gone with the wind...

Song, song of the south.
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth.
Song, song of the south.
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth.

1. I'm afraid the country is going to really need another Roosevelt
if things keep going the way they're going now. My paternal grandaddy worked for Alabama Power back during the depression when they were building the four wpa damms that brought electricity to rural AL. I still visit Lake Martin every summer. In some respects the rural south may fare better than some other places this time around since many people there still have big gardens, and hunt and fish.

3. Hearning FDR's words makes me cry. What we have now compared
in leadership is criminal in more ways than one. FDR gave hope, Bush gives fear just like Hitler

4. God damn, I LOVE a song with a gospel choir. Gives me the shivers every time.
Never was much of an Alabama fan, but THIS song? Oh, yes.
