SOUTHERN TOWN ROMANCE

words and music by Erik J. Matthews



YOU AND I CAN SAIL AWAY

RUN AWAY ON A LITTLE SOUTHERN TOWN ROMANCE

ROLL BY STEAM TRAIN, FALL SLEEPY

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROLLING BLUEGRASS


MAYBE SAIL ON BY A MOONBOW

FIND OURSELVES IN THE MUSIC CITY AND SEE SOME COUNTRY STARS

ROW IN THE TAVERNS

FILL OUR DREAMS WITH SONGS WE DANCED ALONG THOSE WOODEN FLOORS


WHEN MY BABY'S LOVE FINDS HER DIXIE MELODY

THAT'S WHEN MY BABY'S LOVE SHINES AND SINGS FOR ME


AND WHEN MY BABY'S LOVE FINDS HER DIXIE MELODY

THAT'S WHEN MY BABY'S LOVE SHINES AND SINGS FOR ME


YOU AND I CAN SAIL AWAY

RUN AWAY ON A LITTLE SOUTHERN TOWN ROMANCE

ROLL BY STEAM TRAIN, FALL SLEEPY

IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROLLING BLUEGRASS


MAYBE SETTLE IT DOWN 

SOMEWHERE OFF OF '65 NEAR FRANKLIN AND TRY TO CASH IT IN

AND HOLD YOU CLOSE

AS WE WALK ALONG THE RIVER BANKS LEAVING FOOTPRINTS IN THE SAND
