Back Down South Lyrics

Come on down and dance,
If you get the chance,
We're gonna spit on the rival.
All I wanna know,
Is how far you wanna go,
Fighting for survival.

Underneath the stars,
Where we parked the cars,
Ain't showing signs of stopping.

    As the Followill Brothers themselves stated, this song was a tribute to their country side, and just sort of evolved spontaneously as they we're learning the steel guitar

    Drop your cell phone, leave your paperwork back at the office, and enjoy the days freely. Go out with your partner and drive, walk, run aimlessly until you know you've found your South.

    This song is about getting back to their roots, back where they belong and where they are happy.
