You're the mother of the Southland
Where I was born and bred
You're in my heart and everythin' I do

Yeah, you always have a place for me
To rest my weary head
And I will always love you, Bonnie Blue

Bonnie Blue, is your Spanish moss still hangin'?
Bonnie Blue, does your cotton still grow tall?
Bonnie Blue, I've been wonderin' and a waitin'
And it's hard to tell if anybody cares at all

Bonnie Blue, I sure miss you
Oh, Bonnie Blue, I'm sure missin' you

Bonnie Blue, I can smell your Sunday dinner
Bonnie Blue, your magnolias are in bloom
Bonnie Blue, you know you always were a winner
And remember there is someone here
Who still loves you

Bonnie Blue, I sure miss you
Oh, Bonnie Blue, I'm sure missin' you

You're the mother of the Southland
Where I was born and bred
You're in my heart and everythin' I do

Yeah, you always have a place for me
To rest my weary head
And I will always love you, Bonnie Blue

Oh, Bonnie Blue, is your tattered flag still flyin'?
Bonnie Blue, yeah, they showed you wrong from right
Bonnie Blue, I'm so sorry that I'm cryin'
But there's not a lotta difference
Between black and white

Bonnie Blue, I sure miss you
Oh, Bonnie Blue, I'm sure missin' you
