Let go darlin'
I can feel the night wind call
Guess I'd better go
I like you more than half as much
As I love your Spanish moss

Spanish moss hangin' down

Spanish moss
Keeps on followin' my thoughts around
Georgia pine and Ripple wine
Memories of Savannah summertime
Spanish moss
Wish you knew what I was sayin'

So I'm rollin' north thinkin'
Of the way things might have been
If she and I could have changed it all somehow

Spanish moss hangin' down
Lofty as the sycamore you've found
Spanish moss
Keeps on followin' my thoughts around
Georgia pine and Ripple wine
Kisses mixed with moonshine and red clay
Spanish moss
Wish you knew what I was sayin'

So I'm rollin' north thinkin'
Of the way things might have been
If she and I could have changed it all somehow

Let go darlin'
I can feel the night wind call
The devil take the cost
I like the way your kisses flow 
And I love your Spanish moss
