Sometimes my soul gets weary and my mind begins to wonder
And like that old train The Hummingbirdќ 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.

(Southern rain) Like the sunshine it's a blessing sent from heaven
(Southern rain) They can wash away your cares if you let 'em.
You may not believe my story and you may think I'm insane,
But they're the closest thing to home those Southern rains.

Homesick is a feeling, that a body can't get over.
There's no such thing as healing and it won't go away with time.
When we're young we want to get away, when we're old we want to go back.
And we spend our lives replacing all the things we leave behind

(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!
(Southern rain)
Like the sunshine it's a blessing sent from heaven
(Southern rain)
They can wash away your cares if you let them
You may not believe my story and you may think I'm insane
But they're the closest thing to home those Southern Rain.
