Heaven called me southward
Here I came to ground
Midnight minstral rocker
In Pawleys Island town

And every purple evening
I sang a roadhouse down
where the gators grumble
In Pawleys Island town

Now a summer breeze still blows
On Chicora nation
And the season comes and goes
And I've got no life to show

Toll away, Mount Pisgah
Am I lost or found?
I hear thunder rolling
In Pawleys Island town

Now with every night that holds me
One more dream goes down
Swiftly, swiftly ......

Moonlight beams and roses
Antibellum gowns
I know Tansey's waiting
In Pawley's Island town

And the autumn trees explode
Into conflagrations
Gotta get out now, I know
But I just can't seem to go ...

Roll me sweetly, sweetness
Draw your curtains down
There'll be chill come morning

In Pawley's Island town
In Pawley's Island town
Swiftly, swiftly, swiftly
Pawley's Island town
