​Deep In The Heart Of The South

This song is by Ella Fitzgerald and appears on the compilation album Ultimate Ella Fitzgerald (1949) and on the album Classic Decade (1998).

Oh cover me with this deep south
While the wind is cronnin lullabies
Talk me into paradise
Somewhere deep in the heart of the South

Yellow moon is hangin' low
Over fields of cotton white as snow
My heart longs to turn it gold
Somewhere deep in the heart of the South

Laughter fills the afternoon
And every evening lovers linger on the Swanee shores
I can see Magnolias bloom around the cabin door
And that's where I'm goin', sure as your born

I'm a weary rollin' stone
Made my mind up and I'm goin' home
Come on seed and start to grow
Somewhere deep in the heart of the South

Laughter fills the afternoon
And every evening lovers linger on the Swanee shores
I can see Magnolias bloom around the cabin door
And that's where I'm goin', sure as your born

I'm a weary rollin' stone
Nade my mind up and I'm goin' home
Come on feet and start to roam!
Somewhere deep in the heart of the South
Hey come on feet and do your stuff
The way is long and the road is rough
Somewhere deep in the heart of the South
