Highway Headin' South

This song is by Dolly Parton and appears on the album Love is Like a Butterfly (1975).

Oh, on a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in the spring and the snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these chillin' bones in the Southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

North Dakota, you got my better years
Montana, you got five years of my life
But the earth's sub-zero wind will never touch me again
A Southern girl can't live on snow and ice

Oh, on a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in the spring and the snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these chillin' bones in the Southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

When I cross the Dixie line, I'll throw away my coat
And my goose-down underwear will have to go
I'll never live again where the weather chills you to the bone
I'm tired of livin' like an Eskimo

Oh, on a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in the spring and the snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these chillin' bones in the Southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

On a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in the spring and the snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these willin' bones in the Southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die

Oh, on a highway headed south somewhere to Dixie
Where the cotton blooms in the spring and the snow don't fly
I'm gonna rest these chillin' bones in the Southern sunshine
And live where the weather's warm until I die
