Maybe he's in Texas, maybe this town
Maybe Oklahoma plowin' up some ground
Southern Carolina, somewhere on the coast,
Maybe Alabama drivin' thru Montgomery right now.
There's somethin' 'bout a boy from the South.

Maybe he's in Florida, somewhere in the pines,
Maybe on the delta throwin' out a line,
Maybe he's in Georgia, starin' at the stars,
Maybe Tennessee pickin' on a guitar right now.
There's somethin' 'bout a boy from the south

Yea, the first time I felt it I was only 16,
And he kissed me underneath the chinaberry tree.
Said "Goodnight darlin'," with a sweet southern drawl.
Man, I think I might just have to love them all –
My boys from the South.

Maybe in Kentucky, workin' in the mine.
Maybe down in Little Rock, just to pass the time.
Maybe he's somewhere in New Orleans,
Livin' it up in the Big Easy right now.
There's somethin' 'bout a boy from the South.

Yea, the first time I felt it I was only 16,
And he kissed me underneath the chinaberry tree.
Said "Goodnight darlin'," with a sweet southern drawl.
Man, I think I might just have to love them all –
My boys from the South.

Maybe he's in Texas, maybe this town.
My boys from the South.

    Boys from the south are wild and like to have fun, but are also charming and compassionate. They know how to treat a lady. They love their family and god. They have mud on their boots and dirt on their hands. Everything they have, they've earned. They are the best men around. Gotta love boys from the south!

    It's all about falling in love at 16 with a boy from the south, and from then on being drawn to southern men as she got older. I know how she feels, because i too fell for the southern charm and have been lucky enough to love a couple of southern men and am now married to a man from the south.

    Boys from the south have a southern charm that will draw you in, in a heartbeat. No one can resist that southern drawl. They also know how to work hard and play just as hard.

    Reminiscent of admirations for southern boys and trying to sum up the special qualities and tying them with their surroundings like trees, jobs, general unique environments
