Johnny Cash – Southwind lyrics
Writer: Johnny Cash



South- wind

You picked her up in Jacksonville

And left me cold and lonesome in the rain

South- wind

You took her off to Nashville

Left me chokin' in the smoke behind the train

And you go whoooo-wooo-hoo

She's gone a- gain on the South- wind.



Southwind

I need a forty-dollar ticket

And about this time tomorrow I'll be gone

Southwind

But if I had forty dollars

I would by myself a smile to carry on

And you go whoooo-wooo-hoo

She's gone again on the Southwind.



Southwind

Take her fast and take her far

'Cause that's the way she always likes to go

Southwind

I will be waitin' for the round trip

If you'll bring her back and I done told her so

Don't you go whoooo-wooo-hoo

She's gone again on the Southwind.
