somethin’ about a southern girl

First, THANK YOU to all who commented and said prayers and everything regarding my grandma. She’s doing well after having bypass surgery on her right carotid and is in rehab for the next month to allow her to fully recover before going home and having to take care of her husband who is suffering from kidney failure.

Also, thanks for allowing me to take this time off and take care of business. It’s been much needed. I was able to go to the hospital each night after work and spend some quality time with g’ma. I finally caught up with all the laundry, etc. that had been piling up and I think I’m just about caught up everywhere I need to be.

Today I’m sharing with you the video for the song “Southern Girl” by Amos Lee. I love his voice. I love this song. It puts me in a good mood so I’m sharing this good mood with you. Enjoy!

Southern Girl 3:21

(Amos Lee) Soma Eel Music (BMI)

Farewell my sweet
Well the time now has come
and the road has begun
to move beneath my feet

A good thing’s come to an end
Well I hope through the pain
and the heartache and strain
that we can still remain friends

Somethin’ ’bout a southern girl
make me feel right
In the Mississippi morning
she’s an angel in flight
In a blink of an eye
she’ll be out of your sight
Somethin’ ’bout a southern girl

Your soft melody
Well I swear that I heard
from a lost mockingbird
stuck up in a tree

You got a lot goin’ on
Even though I’m not here
please don’t shed any tears
for me dear when I’m gone

Somethin’ ’bout a southern girl
make me feel right
In the Mississippi morning
she’s an angel in flight
In the blink of an eye
she’ll be out of your sight
Somethin’ ’bout a southern

Girl I never meant to leave you lonely
It was only in your mind
Girl I never meant to leave you lonely
It was only a matter of time

Somethin’ ’bout a southern girl
make me feel right
In the Mississippi morning
she’s an angel in flight
In the blink of an eye
she’ll be out of your sight
Somethin’ ’bout a southern
Somethin’ ’bout a southern girl

  1. ahhh my heart! this songgg ahhhhh! tears me open everytime i hear it.

    please listen to “keep it loose, keep it tight” and cry your face off…oh wait, that’s just me? okay.

  2. I’m so glad that your grandma is doing well! I know her full recovery will take a while, but it’s great that she’s made it through surgery. Glad you got to spend time with her!
