Southern Comfort Zone [Acoustic Version] [Version]
by Brad Paisley



When your wheelhouse is the land of cotton,
The first time you leave it can be strange, it can be shocking

Not everybody drives a truck, not everybody drinks sweet tea
Not everybody owns a gun, wears a ball cap boots and jeans
Not everybody goes to church or watches every NASCAR race
Not everybody knows the words to "Ring Of Fire" or "Amazing Grace"

Oh, Dixie Land,
I hope you understand
When I miss my Tennessee home
And I've been away, way too long
That I can't see this world unless I go
Outside my Southern Comfort zone

I have walked the streets of Rome, I have been to foreign lands
I know what it's like to talk and have nobody understand
I have seen the Eiffel Tower lit up on a Paris night
I have kissed a West Coast girl underneath the Northern Lights
I know what it's like to be the only one like me,
To take a good hard look around and be in the minority

And that I miss my Tennessee home
And I've been away, way too long
That I can't see this world unless I go
Outside my Southern Comfort zone

I miss your biscuits and your gravy
Fireflies dancing in the night
You have fed me, you have saved me
Billy Graham and Martha White

I have since become a drifter
And I just can't wait to pack
'Cause I know the road I leave on
It will always bring me back

Look away, look away

I miss my Tennessee home
And I've been away, way too long
That I can't see this world unless I go
Outside my Southern Comfort zone

Look away, look away
