            G           D  C            D                 G    D  C  D
Now I ain't sayin' them la ladies don't know what they're doin'
              G         D        C      D       G    D  C  D
And I been in love with New York City a time or two
           G       D            C       D 
I had some Seattle coffee, some Chicago wind
     G            D                  C   D
Some Kansas sweet fields I'd love to see again
        Am
But the fireflies play where the cattails grow
         C                         D
And them southern girls, they talk nice and slow with

Chorus:
G                   C
Kisses sweeter than Tupelo honey
G                     C      D
Little bit crazy like New Orleans
G                C
Memphis blue and Daytona sunny
G                      C       D 
Soft as cotton in some cut-off jeans
          G    D - C
Don't you know,
                     Em         C
Ain't nothing in the whole wide world, like a southern girl
G             D              C              D 
Southern girl rock my world, hazel eyes and golden curls
G          D             C             D
  Put on a country song,   gonna dance all night long

Verse:
G                 D             C                D           G    D  C  D
a southern girl's mama probably taught her how a lady should act
      G               D              C              D          G    D  C  D
But a southern girl's probably got a barn somewhere reared out back
                    G          D         C             D  
She'll get a little hay in her hair, her thighs in the mud
           G             D         C             D
She's been caught in the rain, and washed in the blood
      Am  
Likes jiggers in her coke, takes a little sip,
      C                    D
Comes over to me with them sunburned lips and them

Chorus:
G                   C
Kisses sweeter than Tupelo honey
G                     C      D
Little bit crazy like New Orleans
G                C
Memphis blue and Daytona sunny
G                      C       D 
Soft as cotton in some cut-off jeans
          G    D - C
Don't you know,
                     Em         C
Ain't nothing in the whole wide world, like a southern girl
G             D              C              D 
Southern girl rock my world, hazel eyes and golden curls
G          D             C             D
