In a southern town where I was born
That's where I got my education
I worked in the fields and I walked in the woods
And I wondered at creation

I recall the sun in a sky of blue
And the smell of green things growin'
And the seasons changed and I lived each day
Just the way the wind was blowin'

Then I heard of a cultured city life
Breathtakin' lofty steeples
And the day I called myself a man
I left my land and my people
