IF YOU WANT A GLIMPSE OF SOUTHERN LIFE,
COME CLOSE AND WALK WITH ME;
I’LL TELL YOU ALL THE SIMPLE THINGS,
THAT YOU ARE SURE TO SEE.
YOU’LL SEE MOCKINGBIRDS AND BUMBLEBEES,
MAGNOLIA BLOSSOMS AND DOGWOOD TREES,
CATERPILLARS ON THE STEP,
WOODEN PORCHES CLEANLY SWEPT;
WATERMELONS ON THE VINE,
STRONG MAJESTIC GEORGIA PINES;
ROCKING CHAIRS AND FRONT YARD SWINGS,
JUNE BUGS FLYING ON A STRING;
TURNIP GREENS AND HOT CORNBREAD,
COLESLAW AND BARBECUE;
FRIED OKRA, FRIED CORN, FRIED GREENS TOMATOES,
FRIED PIES AND PICKLES, TOO.
THERE’S ICE COLD TEA THAT’S SYRUPY SWEET,
AND COOL, GREEN GRASS BENEATH YOUR FEET;
CATFISH NIPPING IN THE LAKE,
AND FRESH YOUNG BOYS ON THE MAKE.
YOU’LL SEE ALL THESE THINGS
AND MUCH, MUCH MORE,
IN A WAY OF LIFE, THAT I ADORE.
