Backroad blacktop through Wilkes County
Making my way back from I-20
Keeping a sharp eye out for the state patrol

Two windows down, pushing near 80
Flying so high because here lately
I’ve been flying out of control

And I’ve been everywhere but home
In the last 96 days
Doing time out on that lost highway
Singing my songs and counting up my sins
But now I’m back on the wings
Of the sweet, southern wind

Sweet southern wind, won’t you carry me home?
Been too far gone for far too long
Sweet southern wind, won’t you carry me home?
Carry me home

So I left a little blood in a tattoo parlor
Met a girl in Nashville, told her I’d call her
That’s been two weeks ago today

Cuz the further I get from that little hour
The more I start thinking about red canna flowers
And the Colbert 4th of July parade

And that’s just one little town
In a whole county of people of which I’m so proud
Going back to where my heart’s always been
Coming in on the wings of the sweet southern wind

Sweet southern wind, won’t you carry me home?
Been too far gone for far too long
Sweet southern wind, won’t you carry me home?
Carry me home

Louisiana, Dothan, Alabama
Nashville, Tennessee, Charleston, SC
Everywhere around and in between

Different faces, different places
Ain’t got nothing on where I call home
Just come on by and you’ll see

Forget the things that you’ve heard
Around here we like to raise hell
And ain’t is a word
Where my life began and where by the grace of god
It will end
Gone away on the wings of the sweet southern wind

Sweet southern wind, won’t you carry me home?
Been too far gone for far too long
Sweet southern wind, won’t you carry me home?
Carry me home
