A slice of southern rock....this one turned out extra special, many thanks for Frank (wonderful guitars and mx), Mike (vocals), Erik (Drums) and a wonderful storyline from Paul.

Southern Rolling (Andy Gupta/Paul Dempsey/Mike Basil/Frank Zax)

00:27 (v1)
I was heading in to Macon, Georgia
Needing a place to stay
Stopping by in sun-kissed Florida
I need be getting on my way

00:40 (v2)
My feet had gotten real itching
The old pickup full of gas
It was time for me to be moving on
And there was no other I needed to ask

00:52 (prechorus)
I had my fill of sunshine
I had enough of the beaches
And if they don't get too precious
I’m gonna pick myself Georgia peaches

1:04 (Chorus)
Southern Rolling I can hear it calling
Yeah I’m heading up the road
Southern Rolling just taking my time
I ain’t fixin to cross
The Mason Dixon line

Southern Rolling I can hear it calling
I’ll be on my way
Southern Rolling just taking my time
I ain't straying
Beyond That Dixie line

1:41 (v3)
I checked into an Inn in Alabama
Went and had a drink at the bar
Pretty girl said - where you’re headed
I said up north but not too far

1:54 (v4)
She asked how long you’d be staying
I said that depends on my feet
She looked at me & started to laugh
And it sounded oh so sweet

2:09 (Prec-ch)
We spent some time together
Made some sweet memories
But the Carolinas calling
Now it's time for me to roll

2:21 (Chorus)
Southern Rolling I can hear it calling
Where I lay my hat is home
Southern Rolling just taking my time
I ain’t fixin To cross
That Mason Dixie line

Southern Rolling I can hear it calling
Open road is in my blood
Southern Rolling just taking my time
I’ll be staying
Within that Mason Dixon line

2:58 Solo 1 - same chords as verse
3:11 Solo 2 - same chords as pre-chorus

3:23 (Chorus)
3: 48 (Outro Breakdown)


Andy Gupta: Original music, bass
Paul Dempsey: Lyrics
Frank Zax: Final arrangement, guitars, mix/master
Mike Basil: Lead and backing vocals

All the songs I get involved with are all special to me... but this one, just a little more so.   Grin

This is definitely one of my favorites.

Thank for including me in this kick-ass southern rocker, Andy... it was a pleasure!   Smiley
