Hippo Campus – South Lyrics

three leagues down
the soft side of where you left my
gold rose crown
you broke down and left me with a
chest hum, a black gun, and forty dollars
chest hum, a black gun, and forty dollars

three weeks down
i drowned myself in whiskey
came back round
drowned out and left me with a
chest hum, a black gun, and forty dollars
chest hum, a black gun, and forty dollars

streetlights talk the same way my mother taught me
i walk the same way my father taught me
back straight and chest out just like a soldier
back straight and chest out just like a soldier

wise man talk the same way my mother taught me
i walk the same way my father taught me
back straight and chest out just like a soldier
back straight and chest out just like a soldier

you go down south, south

streetlights talk the same way my mother taught me
i walk the same way my father taught me
back straight and chest out just like a soldier
back straight and chest out just like a soldier

wise man talk the same way my mother taught me
i walk the same way my father taught me
back straight and chest out just like a soldier
back straight and chest out just like a soldier

About whoopeeyoo

I'm a TV and film junkie. Be it American, Korean, Japanese, Taiwanese, I watch them all. No wonder I don't have enough sleep and hard drive memory. Hee. And oh, fangirling is my business.
