Drive South
Suzy Bogguss Lyrics


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 earned, baby it's our turn
We were always looking for true north
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 and you
We can go down 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 north
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
Come on baby drive south
With the one you love
Come on baby drive south
With the one you love
Come on baby drive south

Its kind of funny I grew up listening to Suzy Boggus, Wynonna Judd, George Strait and many others never realizing I was listening to country music at the best it would ever be. Today's country is such garbage it is not even country music no heart soul put into the lyrics. Now I find myself always listening to the same music I grew up too because it is real country music. She was such a beautiful women and a excellent voice. I wish she would have came out with more music.

Perfectly said !

If I could like this comment a million times, I would bc this is the truest statement ever made!!! You are 100% correct about it all too! 90’s country was (still is IMO) the best it’s ever been and best it will ever be!! Which I’m sure is why they call that decade of music “Prime Country”.

You're spot on, Dan. Today's Country Music Blows even more than when you penned your comment.
