​Southern Lady

This song is by Rita Coolidge and appears on the album Anytime...Anywhere (1977).

I'll be wearin' yellow chiffon and gardenias
Outside a mansion on an emerald lawn
Making small talk to the men folk and the ladies
But I'm yours, yes, I'm yours

I could take you in a house beside a railroad
Feedin' chickens, sweepin' out the yard
Sleepin' double on a single pull-out sofa
It ain't so easy, but it ain't so hard

You could take me for a southern lady
Cherry smiles and all flutterin' eyes
But I could take you any way I had to take you
Anytime, anywhere

There ain't no money in all South Carolina
There ain't no family and there just ain't no man
That I would swap for you, my precious little darlin'
'Cause you're my man, you're my man

You could take me for a southern lady
Cherry smiles and all flutterin' eyes
But I could take you any way I had to take you
Anytime, anywhere
