Dolly Parton – Southern Accents Lyrics

Advertisement

There’s a southern accent, where I come from
The young ‘uns call it country
The Yankees call it dumb

I got my own way of talkin’
But everything is done, with a southern accent
Where I come from, mm-mm

Now that drunk tank in Atlanta
Just a motel room to me
Think I might go work Orlando
If them orange groves don’t freeze

I got my own way of workin’
But everything is run, with a southern accent
Where I come from, mm-mm

For just a minute there I was dreamin’
For just a minute it was all so real
For just a minute she was standin’ there, with me
Mm-mm

In that dream I keep havin’
Where my mama comes to me
Then kneels down over by the window
And she says a prayer for me

I got my own way of prayin’
And every prayer’s begun
With a southern accent
Where I come from, mm-mm

Yes I’m proud of where I am
A southern girl from a southern town
I ain’t ashamed, I ain’t ashamed, I ain’t ashamed
No I ain’t, no I ain’t, no I ain’t

I got my own way of livin’
But everything gets done
With a southern, southern accent
Where I come from, mm-mm, mm-mm
Where I come from
