"Drive South" as written by and John Hiatt....
I didn't say we wouldn't hurt anymore
That's how you learn you just get burned
We don't have to feel like dirt anymore
Though love's not learned baby it's our turn
We were always looking for true love
With our heads in the clouds
Just a little off course
But I left that motor running
Now if you're feeling down and out

Come on baby drive south
With the one you love
Come on baby drive south

I'm not talking about retreating no sir
Gonna take our stand in this chevy van
Windows open on the rest of the world
Holding hands all the way to dixie land
We've been trying to turn our lives around
Since we were little kids
It's been wearing us down
Don't turn away now darling
Lets fire it up and wind it out

Come on baby drive south
With the one you love
Come on baby drive south

I heard your momma calling
I think she was only stalling
Don't know who she's talking to
Baby me or you
We can go south with a smile on
Ain't going to pack my nylons
Just leave these legs showing
It gets hot down where were going

We were always looking for true love
With our heads in the clouds
Just a little off course
But I left that motor running
Now if you're feeling down and out

Come on baby drive south
With the one you love
Come on baby drive south

    General CommentIt is obvious to me that it means a lot more than just getting in the car and driving south. It is full off sexual innuendos. I just joined this site today and plan on finding other country songs that are this way. It is more prominent in country than people probably believe. Examples in this song: the title itself could mean south of her waistline, holding hands all the way to dixie land is just another way of saying this, lets fire it up and wind it out (yet again), and go south with a smile on, she won't pack the nylons, gonna leave her legs showing (for easy access), and it gets hot down where we're going!! lol
