Oh, southern star, how I wish you would shine
And show me the way to get home
Well I'm blue-collar branded, and stuck in a mill
Hard work is a way of life for me

Well I'm too young to live like I'm over the hill
And too old to be wild and free
My heart is onward bound I'm rolling with the feeling and I can't slow down
I need a guiding light shining down to lead me through the night

Oh southern star, how I wish you would shine
And show me the way to get home
Oh, hey my DJ friend, would you play me one more song
And let my mind just go and drift away

Now we all have a dream and a place where we belong
Somewhere we can go and escape
My heart is onward bound I'm rolling with the feeling and I can't slow down
I need a guiding light shining down to lead me through the night

Oh, southern star, how I wish you would shine
And show me the way to get home
Oh, southern star, how I wish you would shine
And show me the way to get home
