My Current Obsession

Hank Williams sang it

Number 3 drove it

Chuck Berry twanged it

Will Faulkner wrote it

Aretha Franklin sold it

Dolly Parton graced it

Rosa Parks rode it

Scarlett O chased it



Smooth as the hickory wind

That blows from Memphis

Down to Apalachicola

It's hi ya'll did ya eat well

Come on in I'm

Sure glad to know ya

Don't let this old gold cross

And this Allman Brothers t-shirt throw ya

It's cicadas making noise

With a southern voice



Hank Aaron smacked it

Michael Jordan dunked it

Pocahantas tracked it

Jack Daniels drunk it

Tom Petty rocked it

Dr. King paved it

Bear Bryant won it

Billy Graham saved it



Smooth as the hickory wind

That blows from Memphis down to Apalachicola

It's hi ya'll did ya eat well

Come on in I'm sure glad to know ya

Don't let this old gold cross

And this Crimson Tide t-shirt throw ya

It's cicadas making noise

With a southern voice



Jesus is my friend

America is my home

Sweet iced tea and Jerry Lee

Daytona Beach

That's what gets to me

I can feel it in my bones



Smooth as the hickory wind

That blows from Memphis

Down to Apalachicola

It's hi ya'll did ya eat well

Come on in child

I'm sure glad to know ya

Don't let this old gold cross

And this Charlie Daniels t-shirt throw ya

We're just boys making noise

With a southern voice



Southern Voice

I got a southern voice

A southern voice


This song encompasses so much that I L-O-V-E about the South & what makes it so special to me! I love the fact that this song is my favorite movie, not just of this year, but honestly of all time The Blind Side (it passed up Steel Magnolias y'all - that's HUGE!) I also love that the official video was filmed at the NFL kick-off party in Pittsburgh & everyone is waving Terrible Towels! There is so much I just LOVE about this song, video, artist, etc. and I hope y'all love it too! What is your current obsession?
