The Cadillac Three – The South

The Cadillac Three is een nieuw geluid in de countrymuziek. De drie langharige leden Jaren Johnston (zanger), Kelby Ray (guitaar) en Neil Mason brachten in december hun debuutsingle The South uit. Zij kregen daarvoor de medewerking van Dierks Bentley, Florida Georgia Line en Mike Eli van The Eli Young Band. Johnston schreef al eerdere hits zoals You Gonna Fly voor Keith Urban en Southern Girl voor Tim McGraw. The South is een song met uiteraard Zuiderse rockinvloeden en zij is nu langzaam aan een opmars begonnen in de onderste regionen van de hitlijsten.

Songtekst :

Oh yeah.
Boots and buckles, red clay and sand
My point ain’t subtle here,
I’m a southern man
Where the beer seems cooler and the women seem hotter
Where the world don’t seem so damn modern
And a good ole boy like me still has a chance

This is where I was born this is where I’ll die
Yeah, this is where I was born and this is where I’ll die

It’s all about
The south Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Carolina,
Don’t you wanna get down and dirty
‘cause, Florida I’m thirsty,
Hit me with your Tennessee whiskey and crank it up loud
Laid back, you crazy old timer, sweet magnolia, dive bars and diners,
Oh yeah oh, and even if you’re
Up north, c’mon down, c’mon down
Oh, it’s all about the south.

From daddy’s don Williams to mama’s patsy Cline oh,
We’re walkin’ after midnight” singing Tulsa time, oh, yeah
Where the beer seems colder and the women seem hotter
Where the world don’t seem so damn modern yeah,
This is where I was born this is where I’ll die
Oh that’s right!

It’s all about
The south Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Carolina,
Don’t you wanna get down and dirty
‘cause, Florida I’m thirsty,
Hit me with your Tennessee whiskey and crank it up loud
Laid back, you crazy old timer, sweet magnolia, dive bars and diners,
Oh yeah oh, and even if you’re
Up north, c’mon down, c’mon down
Oh, it’s all about the south.

Bring it on down and sing it with me now
This is where I was born and this is where I’ll die
This is where I was born and this is where I’ll die
This is where I was born and this is where I’ll die
This is where I was born and this is where I’ll die

It’s all about
The south Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Carolina,
Don’t you wanna get down and dirty
‘cause, Florida I’m thirsty,
Hit me with your Tennessee whiskey and crank it up loud
Laid back, you crazy old timer, sweet magnolia, dive bars and diners,
Oh yeah oh, and even if you’re
Up north, c’mon down, c’mon down
Oh, I said and even if you’re
Up north, c’mon down, c’mon down
Oh, it’s all about the south.
