Flying South    (1964)

Summer's gone and wintertime's a comin'
And where I am ain't where I wanna be
I can hear my southern home a callin'
And it's callin' out that old wild goose in me

I got kids and kin down in Kentucky
I got lots of aunts in Alabam'
Mom's a waitin' down in Mississippi
And my sis's in Carolina's honey land

Flyin', flyin' south to Dixie
Lord I've been so lonesome and alone
Stayin' ain't no use because my heart's an old wild goose
And so tomorrow I'll be flyin' south for home

Grandma and grandpa's down in Georgia
And my sweetheart's down in Tennessee
There's a little part of all the southland in my heart
And, honey, in the south is where I wanna be

Summer's gone and wintertime's a comin'
And where I am ain't where I wanna be
I can hear my southern home a callin'
And it's callin' out that old wild goose in me

Flyin', flyin' south to Dixie
Lord I've been so lonesome and alone
Stayin' ain't no use because my heart's an old wild goose
And so tomorrow I'll be flyin' south for home

And tomorrow I'll be flyin' south for home
