Southern Man Song Lyrics


Southern man, you better
Keep your head
Don't forget
What your good book said
Southern change gonna
Come at last
Now your crosses
Are burning fast
Southern man
Southern man
I saw cotton
And I saw a man
Tall white mansions
And little shacks
Southern man
When will you
Pay them back?
I heard screamin'
Bullwhips cracking
How long? How long?
How long is it gonna last?
Southern man
Lily Belle
Your hair is golden brown
I've seen your flag man
Comin' round
I swear by God
I'm gonna cut him down!
I heard screamin'
Bullwhips cracking
How long? How long?
How long is it gonna last?
Oh southern man
Southern man
Better keep your head
Don't forget
What your good book said
Southern change
About to come
You gotta stop burning
Your crosses so fast
Southern man
