Way down south
where water turns to wine
but we don't settle
cause there's whiskey in the rain
Way down south
where the skylines are built of steeples and fit for heaven
but they welcome every man.
I won't talk about the weather
if you ride that airplane straight back home to me
yeah, I could listen to you breathing
and forget everything.

Don't go waiting for the clouds outside
to show a little rain
but it if takes rain I'll beg Jesus Christ
to flood the world again.
I wish I could sing
I wish I could sing
but I just run my mouth
More than anything
I wanna go south.

Way down south
there's a prophet
telling young boys not to settle
there's poison in the rain.
Way down south
there's a preacher staring at the burning sky
saying the fire will save us yet
I won't talk about forever
you'll just ask me why that airplanes fly
and ships don't sink.
yeah I won't feel like I am home again.
till you and I are dancing

While you were waiting on that ledge outside
the crowds are gathering
but all they're looking for is one more song
they love to hear you sing.
I wish I could sing
I wish I could sing
but I just run my mouth
more than anything I wanna go south.

i always told you you could talk me down
but you never said a thing
i was just choosing to believe them when they say
"oh, we love to hear you sing"
I wish i could be
something better than me
but i just run my mouth
more than anything
i want to go south
