Southern Comfort Zone

Nick came home the other day and said I needed to hear Brad Paisley’s new song, Southern Comfort Zone.  I finally heard it on the way to work today and I think Mr. Paisley wrote it specifically for me. I was on the jumbotron at his concert a few years ago, so clearly he knows who I am. 🙂  My favorite lyrics are in bold.

Southern Comfort Zone lyrics

When your wheelhouse is the land of cotton,
The first time you leave it can be strange, it can be shocking

Not everybody drives a truck, not everybody drinks sweet tea
Not everybody owns a gun, wears a ball cap boots and jeans
Not everybody goes to church or watches every nascar race
Not everybody knows the words to “Ring Of Fire” or “Amazing Grace”

Chorus:
Oh, Dixie Land,
I hope you understand
When I miss my Tennessee Home
And I been away way too long
I can’t see this world unless I go
Outside my Southern Comfort Zone

I have walked the streets of Rome, I have been to foreign lands
I know what it’s like to talk and have nobody understand
I have seen the Eiffel Tower lit up on a paris night
I have kissed a West Coast girl underneath the Northern Lights
I know what it’s like to meet the only one like me,
To take a good hard look around and be a minority

And I Miss my Tennessee home
I can see the ways that I grown
I can’t see this world unless I go
Outside my Southern Comfort Zone

I miss your biscuits and your gravy
Fireflies dancing in the night
You have fed me and saved me
Billy Graham and Martha White

I have since become a gypsy
And I just can’t wait to pack
Cause I know the route I leave on
It will always bring me back

Chorus
I wish I was in Dixie Again
I miss my Tennessee Home
I’ve been away way too long
I can’t see this world unless I go
Outside My Southern Comfort Zone

Look away, look away.
