Good Old-Fashioned Southern Gal

I like Dolly Parton
She’s a kick in the nuts
And Loretta Lynn,
Man, she’s got grit n guts
Miranda Lambert’s accent
is both sexy ‘n funny
and dear Alison Krauss
She’s sweeter than honey

Carrie Underwood’s vocals
Blaze through songs like a wildfire
Natalie Maines has an attitude
I really love and admire
All these women’s voices
have hit my ear canal
Each one of them has traits
Of a good old-fashioned Southern gal

They had good parents
and they have great genes
They all have been named
Country Music’s queens
I feel like any one of them
could be my lifelong pal
Man, there’s nothin’ like
A good old-fashioned Southern gal

Good old-fashioned Southern gal
Good old-fashioned Southern gal
Man, there’s nothin’ like
A good old-fashioned Southern gal

But you don’t have to be
A singer or a TV star
Or drive a pickup truck
It could be a small car
You don’t have to wear
Them Tomy Lama boots
As long as you’re proud
Of your family’s roots

Confidence and drive
Don’t come with country clothes
Neither does havin’ fancy polish
On your nails and toes
You don’t have to have
A couple horses in the corral
To be as cool as a
Good old-fashioned Southern gal

Good old-fashioned Southern gal
Good old-fashioned Southern gal
Man, there’s nothin’ like
A good old-fashioned Southern gal

So if you love your parents
And all your family too
And you love a good joke
Even when it’s on you
If you’re mentally strong
And you love your life
Some stud will come along
And ask you to be his wife

He’ll love you forever
Even when your hair turns white
He’ll cuddle close with you
In your bed at night
You don’t have to have a farm
Or even eat lo-cal
To have the down home charm
Of a good old-fashioned Southern gal

Good old-fashioned Southern gal
Good old-fashioned Southern gal
Man, there’s nothin’ like
A good old-fashioned Southern gal!
