Sometimes my soul gets weary and my mind begins to wonder
And like that old train The Hummingbird it goes to Alabam
They say home is where the heart is and mine is down in Dixie
And when you go down to Dixie you're heading for higher ground
(Southern rain) Blowing from the coast of Mississippi
(Southern Rain) I feel better when those Southern waters hit me.
I can't dip into Jordan seven times to easy the pain,
But I can pray for help and hope from Southern Rain.
