Lyrics

The Southern mama's just got to be strong

'Cause the Southern daddy

Dies before too long

Working the pulpwood every day

Makes his life kind of slip away

 

Mama keeps to herself

All the tears she's cried

She knows daddy loved her

'Til the day he died

So she tries to raise the kids

As best she can

Happy she was married

To a damned good man

 

*CHORUS*

*All the way from the banks

Of the Withlacoochee

To a sharecropper's shack

Up in Tennessee

You can see the lady

With the sad eyes trying

To find food and clothes

For the family,

 

Yeah, the Southern mama's

Just got to be strong

'Cause the Southern daddy

Dies before too long

 

Then the sun is rising

It's another day

She's got work to do

She's got bills to pay

But late in the evening

She can rest a spell

And laugh at the jokes

That the children tell

The South's got beauty

And the South's got soul

But it ain't got silver

And it ain't got gold

*CHORUS*
