Sweet Southern Moon Lyrics

There's a break in the fence between the sixth and seventh tree

Just wide enough to fit an SUV

You can't see it from the river road

Till by the leaves

But I'll show you if you promise that you won't say anything

Take it easy going up

Spinning tires will get you stuck

We'll be right back down at the bottom of the levee

Take it even easier going down

That grass stays muddy all year round

But get going fast at the path

Keep it steady

I tell my parents we were going to the movies yeah

The movie in the middle of the woods

And we were screaming down the river road

Smiling at the fading city lights in my rear view

Looking for break in fence that a few friends and I took handsaw to

We had all the right ingredients for doing something new

Drank brews had great time marinating in that sweet southern moon

 

She was pristine

I was fifteen

Nothing to lose but my virginity

And I did right there

Under that magnolia tree

And I don't remember anything

I remember how she felt lord I remember everything

I remember it oh so well

And I see her now running barefoot down the driveway

Jumping in my front seat in those faded old pj's

We were screaming down the river road

Smiling at the fading city lights in my rear view

Looking for the place she feels safe not a soul around

Lay a little blanket down woo woo woo

We had all the right ingredients for doing something new

Made my move

Revved her upright

Marinating in that sweet sweet southern moon

 

Haven't been here in a few years

So I brought along this old guitar and a few beers

Guess I had a feeling I'd write a song

Sitting here I can hear river echo with the memories I'm glad I have

I will never let go of

Screaming down the river road

Smiling at the fading city lights in my rear view

Looking for break in fence that a few friends and I took handsaw to

We had all the right ingredients for doing something new

Drank some brews had great time marinating in that sweet summer

Smoking joints down by the river stoned and laughing under

You're in my heart you are a part of me

You sweet sweet southern moon yeah yeah yeah yeah

There's a break in the fence between the sixth and seventh tree

Just wide enough to fit an SUV
