Southern Nights    (1977)

Southern nights
Have you ever felt a southern night?
Free as a breeze not to mention the trees
Whistling tunes that you know and love so.

Southern nights
Just as good even when closed your eyes.
I apologize to anyone who can truly say
That he has found a better way

Southern skies
Have you ever noticed southern skies?
It's precious beauty lies just beyond the eye.
It goes running through your soul
Like the stories told of old

Old man
He and his dog that walked the old land
Ev'ry flower touched his cold hand.
As he slowly walked by
Weeping willows would cry for joy...

Feel so good
Feel so good it's fright'ning.
Wish I could stop this world from fighting.
La da da da da da la da da da da da da da da . . .

Mysteries like this and many others in the trees
Blow in the night
in the southern skies.

Southern nights
They feel so good it's fright'ning
