Angry southern gentleman, left his southern dirt.
Brushed it from his leather boots and his sunday shirt.
Took along his manners like the summer shade.
Whispered like a cotton mouth drinking lemonade.
One kiss for his mama.
Scarecrows in the corn.
Save a prayer for jesus cuz he ain’t never coming home.

Took up with a yankee girl at a fireworks stand.
Handed her his handkerchief for her dirty hands.
Went back to her motel room.
Whiskey in his coat.
Held her in his sanity ‘til the morning broke.
One kiss for his mama.
Scarecrows in the corn.
Save a prayer for jesus cuz he ain’t never coming home.

Angry southern gentleman left his southern dirt.
Brushed it from his auburn hair and his sunday shirt.
Left behind his bible and the wrought iron gate.
Left behind the sugar bowl and his southern hate.
One kiss for his mama.
Scarecrows in the corn.
Save a prayer for jesus cuz he ain’t never coming home.
