Drivin' N' Cryin' – Honeysuckle Blue lyrics
Feel the southern breezes
And the southern wind
Blowin' down around this
Dying land
D'Agostino's late last night I saw
A boy fifteen on the road
Nothing in the pocket
His hand to the sky
Nowhere else to go
Can you see it
Or believe it
What's beyond east orange
And farther yet
Come with me
I'll show you where the
Dogwood's bloom it's true
Lost n' found n' lost again
To the
Honeysuckle Blue
Runnin' through these
Caverns of gold
Runs a river of death indeed
An old hotel serves as a
Shelter for children
Of the street
Abandoned by the promised land
Set sail on your own
How much longer
Will the well
Be dry for those
Who roam
I got a ticket
In my pocket
To send the corner man
He's never been
Have you ever seen the
Blue ridge mountains boy
Or the chatahoochee
To the Honeysuckle Blue

    I don't come from North Georgia but I do live near Atlanta and remember swimming and tubin' on the Hooch. Summer nights with the scent of honeysuckle, pinching off the end and pulling out the sweet nectar. And a summer never went by that we didn't go to the Blue Ridge Mountains. I am older than these guys but this song reminds me of my childhood.

    Well I have seen these guys play since the early 90s. I think the song is a story of a man from Ga who sees the inner city slums and people that have never seen anything better than the rundown hopelessnes that surrounds them daily. How cities are horrible places for unwanted children and poor people. Seems like he has a plan to give one of them a ticket to the blue ridge mnts. Get him out of the ghetto and allow him to see that there is a beauty in this world he has never seen which may restore his hope for the future. Beautiful song. It makes me cry.

    It references to north Georgia and their childhood. The Blue Ridge mountains and the Chatahoochee are there. I live there o I can back this up by saying that I have been to these places. They are also talking about how they long to be back at their home in north Georgia.
