"Florida" as written by and Jj Grey....
I remember my grandpa tellin me
About the early days of Florida
Born a swamp cracka two miles from Granny's Bay
Comin up the way of the wilderness
No car, phone, or electric light
Yeah just livin life one day at a time
No newspaper, no war, no strife
Just the elemental keys that provide for life

CHORUS:
Florida I know you're out there hiding from me
You get harder and harder to find
To understand every day she keeps slippin away
Florida please don't fade on me now

Autum sun sets morning skys ablaze
The oaks and the pines turn their palms up to the sun
The kind of beauty that hits down in your soul
But still you're hellbent to destroy it all
With Concrete and steel we pave
A road to hell on a land we've killed
So take a good look and remember it now
Cause one day you're gonna wake up and find it goooooone.

BRIDGE:
Now skyskrapers and superhighways are carving throught the heart of Florida
Building subdivisions while the swamps are drained, making room for people and amusement parks (repeat)

It's like watching someone you love die slow
Yeah, they're killing her one piece at a time
I know some fools who think I should let go,
But the've never seen Florida through my eyes.

CHORUS:
I know you're out there hiding from me
You get harder and harder to find
Every day she keeps slipping away
Florida please don't fade on me now

Florida, I know you're out there hiding from me
You get harder and harder to find
Every day she keeps slipping away
Florida please don't fade on me now
