Ashley McBryde – Southern Babylon lyrics
[Verse 1]
Starin' through a spiderweb where the windshield used to be
What's left of the dashboard, the smell of gasoline
I can just make out one neon light south off through the trees
My feet took over walkin' 'fore my mind caught up with me
When I walked in my tab was already open
My drink was poured and my cigarette was smokin'

[Chorus]
Somebody said "Hey girl, where you been? Doncha know I been waitin' for ya?
"Got a band up there been dyin' to play a little 'Devil Went Down to Georgia'
"Rest that trav'lin' soul, looks like the road was long
"Welcome to Southern Babylon"

[Verse 2]
Had to pull myself together and ask to use the phone
The waitress smiled a wicked grin, it sent a chill right through my bone
I said "I need to call the tow-truck, some way to move along"
She said, "Who you wanna call now that you've been called home?"

[Chorus]
She said "Hey girl, where you been? Doncha know I been waitin' for ya?
"You got a band up there just dyin' to play a little 'Hotel California'
"And maybe it's not sinkin' in, but you'll learn to play along
"Honey, you been gone since you walked into Southern Babylon"

[Verse 3]
"I'm not supposed to be here, bartender don't you see?
"I took a gig down in Atlanta and the brakes gave out on me"
She said, "We know all about ya. It's a little bit too late"
She handed me a guitar and pointed to the flames

[Chorus]
"Hey girl, where you been? Doncha know I been waitin' for ya?
"You got a band up there just dyin' to play a little 'Devil Went Down to Georgia'
"Rest that trav'lin' soul, looks like the road was long
"Welcome to Southern Babylon"
Southern Babylon
Welcome to Southern Babylon
Welcome home
