[Verse 1] When I was 15 I dreamed of leaving my home I had to see the world And live like a rolling stone I heard California was paved in gold So I hopped on that train It didn't come easy But I keep thinking bout The green grass and missing my home [Chorus] Take me back to my southern ways Where I can be myself and live another day Take me back to my southern ways Where the tall pines blow and the southern winds kiss my face [Verse 2] Oh southern grace Me and my boys started a band Practiced everyday out on the Hell House land Played every honky tonk and this ol bar To sing about Sweet 'Bama We were just simple men The music is forever And the songs will never ever end [Chorus] [Verse 3] Oh take me back! I sit here thinking about those days I wouldn't change a thing about my life today Ain't it funny how time sure flies Cause all I ever wanted and all I ever needed WAS YOU [Chorus]
