If You Can Get a Good Southern Woman

I’ll make you love me more than you’ve ever loved anyone else and I won’t do it with prettiness

Ill do it by tucking right in below and around you even when it’s hard

Ill do it by being exactly as you want me to be

Strong enough

for your boat to float atop

Soft enough

to go around your rock

Just enough

to please you

Yer smile’ll be for me

Yer hands and eyes too

And yer thoughts’ll be with me

While I’m doin’ this for you
