lyrics

South Carolina girl, Here I come
I'm coming up from Georgia where I seen the sun
for the first time in weeks, oh it gave me life
I left my heart up north but it felt all right

Oh my dear you look so bright
dancing in barely any light
Your mouth reminds me of my hills back home
and your eyes ain't like nothing that I've ever known.

Her calming breath upon my brow
cooled my sweat and eased my pain
I left her back but don't know how
I'll hold her again if i can

So I hit the road with some men
whom I entrust as my closest friends
drinking and dancing in the dusk
Living fast and loving rough

Oh my dear you look so bright
dancing in barely any light
Your mouth reminds me of the hills back home
and your eyes ain't like nothing that I've ever known.

The hills don't live all alone you see
I brought them right along with me
In my dirty hands they do reside
strange and warm, side by side
