Will hoge - Still a southern man

There's a flag flyin' over head and I used to think it meant one thing
Now I've grown up and seen the world and I know what it really means
I wanted it to be a symbol of a boy who wasn't scared to take a stand
But now I know it's just a hammer drivin' nails in the coffin of a long dead land
Oh, and I can't take it anymore

But I'm still a Southern man
Don't want your stars n bars and your blood on my damn hands
I'm lookin' away now Dixie cause I've seen all I can stand
But I'm still a Southern man

Line really ain't that thin between heritage and hate
One sayin' Yes Ma'am and Thank You and making sure you pull your own weight
The others what happens when you try to hold down anybody that ain't just like you
You can call it what you want but it's a god damned shame
And I'm glad I finally see the truth

Oh I can finally see the truth


But I'm still a Southern man
Don't want your stars n bars and your blood on my damn hands
I'm lookin' away now Dixie cause I've seen all I can stand
But I'm still a Southern man

You say, Where's your rebel pride boy I'm sorry Mister but it's all gone
That flag ain't never lead to one thing good
Oh I can't wait to tear it down

But I'm still a southern man
Woah I'm still a southern man

I'm lookin' away now Dixie cause I've seen all I can stand
But I'm still a Southern man
Don't want your stars n bars and your blood on my damn hands
I'm lookin' away now Dixie cause I've seen all I can stand
But I'm still a Southern man
Still a Southern man
