southern accents – tom petty lyrics

there’s a southern accent
where i come from
the young ‘uns call it country
the yankees call it dumb
i got my own way of talking
but everything gets done
with a southern accent
where i come from

now that drunk tank in atlanta
is just a motel room to me
think i might go work orlando
if them orange groves don’t freeze
got my own way of working
but everything is run
with a southern accent
where i come from

for just a minute there i was dreaming
for just a minute it was all so real
for just a minute
she was standing there with me

there’s a dream i keep having
where my mama comes to me
and kneels down over by the window
and says a prayer for me
got my own way of praying
but everything one’s begun
with a southern accent
where i come from

got my own way of living
but everything is done
with a southern accent
where i come from
