Lyrics

SOUTHERN WOMAN IN THE LIGHT OF AN AFTERNOON

Southern woman in the light of an afternoon
Can look a little faded, a little bleached at times
Like some ordinary old motel where you happen to be
Suddenly she's everyday, comfortable company
She says My beauty's off-duty, I'm just hanging out,
Her beauty's off-duty, but it do peep out

Something said about a date later on that night
She says she wants to show you she really can look good
You tell her you never been the kind to care much about clothes
Still that night you're curious, wondering what she chose
Instead of jeans and a blouse, she wears a blouse and jeans
And she looks totally different, you wonder what it means

She wears the southern night time
The soft warm southern air
Speaks your name and you can hardly hear
Because the blood is rushing through your inner ear
And she brushes your hand quite naturally
And you're paralyzed, you can barely breathe
And you're feeling clumsy, you're a frozen fool
Till she makes it easy to blow off your cool
And just love her

Southern woman in the light of an afternoon
Is something else entirely underneath a southern moon

She says I know that I'm crazy, promise you won't tell
You know she's not crazy, but keep it to yourself

'Cause she wears the southern night time
The soft warm southern air
Speaks your name and you can hardly hear
Because the blood is rushing through your inner ear
And she brushes your hand quite naturally
And you're paralyzed, you can barely breathe
And you're feeling clumsy, you're a frozen fool
Till she makes it easy to blow off your cool
And just love her

Southern woman in the light of an afternoon
Man you could have missed it making up your mind too soon

Southern woman in the light of an afternoon
