Lyrics

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 talking, but everything gets done
With a southern accent, where I come from

Now that drunk tank in Atlanta, is just a motel room to me
Think I might go work Orlando, if them orange groves don't freeze
Got my own way of working, but everything is run
With a southern accent, where I come from

For just a minute there I was dreaming
For just a minute it was all so real
For just a minute she was standing there, with me

There's a dream I keep having, where my momma comes to me
And kneels down over by the window, and says a prayer for me
Got my own way of praying, but everything one's begun
With a southern accent, where I come from

Got my own way of living, but everything is done
With a southern accent, where I come from

Chords

F         Dm  C    F             Dm-C     F
There’s a southern accent, where I   come from
    Dm        C       F
The young’uns call it country
    A#              C
The yankees call it dumb
         Dm  C      F
I got my own way of talkin’
    A#            C            Dm- C    A#
But everything is done, with a southern accent
(still A#)         F
Where I come from

Now that drunk tank in atlanta’s
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

A#                      Dm
For just a minute there I was dreaming
A#                       Dm
For just a minute it was all so real
A#                        C        F           A#  F
For just a minute she was standing there, with me

There’s a dream I keep having
Where my mama comes to me
And kneels down over by the window
And says a prayer for me
I got my own way of prayin’
But everyone’s begun
With a sou thern accent
Where I come from

         Dm  C      F
I got my own way of livin’
    A#              C
But everything gets done
       Dm- C    A#
With a southern accent
                   F
Where I come from
