The Ozark Mountain Daredevils – Southern Cross lyrics

(INTRO)

There's a lotta folks down at the island

That follow that astrology

Some got a chart of the heavens

And some got a fancy degree

But me I got a pick-up

And I drive it like a Fourth of July

And that's where I seen the vision

When it fell right out of the sky



It said



Follow, follow the southern cross

Leave your luck in Mexico

There ain't no way to get lost

Cause there ain't no place to go



So I bought me a ticket to Texas

And I hopped on a plane to Peru

I met a little lady from Chile

And she fed me a tropical root

Now I'm down in Tierra del Fuego

And nothin' around me is right

I think I got a case of lumbago

But it's better than the northern lights



I gotta



Follow, follow the southern cross

Leave your luck in Mexico

There ain't no way to get lost

Cause there ain't no place to go

(HORN SOLO)



So I paddled out to Easter Island

About as fast as I could go

I saw and albatross on the horizon

And the stone heads all in a row

I found the secret of navigation

And the mystery of the Milky Way

Now I'm livin' in the constellations

Tell me what more I can say



You gotta



Follow, follow the southern cross

And leave your luck in Mexico

There ain't no way to get lost

Cause there ain't no place to go

Whoa!

(HORN STUFF)
