South
Hippo Campus Lyrics


Three leagues down the soft side of where you left my
Gold rose crown, you broke down and left me with a
Chest hum, a black gun, and forty dollars
Chest hum, a black gun, and forty dollars
Three weeks down I drown myself in whiskey
Came back round, and drowned out, you left me with a
Chest hum, a black gun, and forty dollars
Chest hum, a black gun, and forty dollars

Streetlights talk the same way my mother told me
I walk the same way my father told me
Back straight and chest out, just like a soldier
Back straight and chest out, just like a soldier
Wise men talk the same way my mother told me
I walk the same way my father told me
Back straight and chest out, just like a soldier
Back straight and chest out, just like a soldier

You go down south, south
Streetlights talk the same way my mother told me
I walk the same way my father told me
Back straight and chest out, just like a soldier
Back straight and chest out, just like a soldier
Wise men talk the same way my mother told me
I walk the same way my father told me
Back straight and chest out, just like a soldier
Back straight and chest out, just like a soldier

ÆONSONE There was no need for that rude comment. Hippo campus are a great band and I’m pretty sure everyone else watching this video agrees so go take your negative attitude someplace else

These dudes are from my hometown and I know the electric guitarist kinda well. They're all great guys and they deserve all the credit they get. Genius music and I can't wait to watch them get more popular.
