Song Description

A groovy backbeat acoustic country ballad featuring dobro and twangy lead electric, sold male lead vocals, as well as big group BGV's.

Story Behind the Song

This is a story about a Southern Girl who is in need of a change in her life, even if it's just for awhile. She's tired of the same old scene, and her same old life, and the same old guys with the same old lines. So she breaks away, and takes a vacation up north to Traverse City, MI. There she finds a little peace, cherry wine, and unexpected romance.

Broadjam Member Reviews

Catchy intro. Great upbeat summer vibe. Wait, am I listening to the radio? This is a pro recording, arrangement, instruments and vocalist. Good Luck!!!

    - Carol Ann Jones
Lyrics

Well she took off just 2 weeks into that summer
White sand and 100 in the shade
She left that Carolina coastline for a bonfire and some cherry wine
Sitting right beside that Michigan riverbank

She'd heard those northern boys'd tear your heart out
She knew the winters up there could be cruel
But she'd still trade all of her pretty,
for a week in Traverse City
Leave that southern boy crying like a fool.

Because you know the grass ain't always greener
On the other side of that fresh water lake
But those Northern winds keep calling
And her Southern Heart is just dying for a break

Well he spent his summers out on great lake waters
tourist fishing's how the bills get paid
But he's trading charter boats and salmon
for a 6 pack and a hammock
and he's headed to that Michigan river bank

Packed his truck and he made it there by sunset
with a million colors burning up the sky
and he swore he'd never seen anything so pretty
'til those long tan legs and southern smile caught his eye.

Because you know the grass ain't always greener
On the other side of that fresh water lake
But those Northern winds keep calling
And her Southern Heart is just dying for a break

And he said, now tell me darlin'
You aint from around here are you
she laughed an they got to talking
And they talked about beaches and bars,
about life and God and broken hearts
til that week had slipped right from them

Back at home, she thought about her week there,
and never could get settled back to things.
So one day she called that northern boy up
hopped a plane to jump in his truck
and head back out to that Michigan river bank

Because you know the grass ain't always greener
On the other side of that fresh water lake
But those Northern winds keep calling
And her Southern Heart is just dying for a break
