Lyrics

SOUTHBOUND QUEEN

Brunette, blue eyes, and with a winnin’ smile
Nothin’ fancy; she dressed in style
Kids off to college; when they left she cried
But-now can this girl fly? Southbound Queen

South-bound … there she goes
Adios Jersey; arriba – vamanos!
South-bound; chasin’ her dream
Prayin’ to God the brass ring
Is within her means …
Go for it Anne Marie
She’s a Southbound Queen

She drove to Nashville in her Mom Mobile
All alone there behind the wheel
A Volvo wagon sportin’ Jersey plates
Say goodbye Garden State; Southbound Queen

South-bound … there she goes
Adios Jersey; arriba – vamanos!
South-bound; chasin’ her dream
Prayin’ to God the brass ring
Is within her means …
Go for it Anne Marie
She’s a Southbound Queen

Black Berry Blossom
She made the pickers weep
Or’nge Blossom Special
Made that mandolin speak
I love my Anne Marie
Long live the Queen

South-bound … there she goes
Adios Jersey; arriba – vamanos!
South-bound; chasin’ her dream
Prayin’ to God the brass ring
Is within her means …
Southbound Queen
She was a Southbound Queen

That brass ring and me; now belong to the Queen
