"Southern Nights" by Allen Toussaint, from the album Southern Nights (1975).


Southern nights
Have you ever felt a southern night?
Free as a breeze
Not to mention the trees
Whistling tunes that you know and love so

Southern nights
Just as good even when closed your eyes
I apologize to anyone who can truly say
That he has found a better way

Feel so good
Feel so good
It's frigth'ning
Wish I could,
Stop this world from fighting.
La da da da da da la da da da da da da da da

Southern skies
Have you ever noticed southern skies?
It's precious beauty lies just beyond the eye.
It goes running through your soul
Like the stories told of old

Old man
He and his dog that walked the old land
Ev'ry flower touched his cold hand
As he slowly walked by
Weeping willows
Would cry for joy

Like this and many others in the trees
Blow in the night
In the southern skies.

Southern nights
They feel so good it's fright'ning...
Wish I could stop this world from fighting
La da da da da da la da da da da da
