Lyrics - Sweet South Breeze

Sweet South Breeze
(from 1978's Not Shy)

She blew in on a sweet south breeze
Looking like Dixieland jamboree, yeah
She was a diamond
She sparkled to me so bright
And I was astounded
I thought I saw the southern starlight

The sweet south breeze
Come to take me home

I was a loner and I kept to my own
She showed me things I could never have known
Now I can be happy each and everyday
When sheís beside me
You know Iím feeling that way

Now itís the sweet south breeze
Come to take me home
Now itís the sweet south breeze
Come to take me home

I was through with love
Yeah, I thought it was funny
Every girl that I ever called honey
Left me sad and left me sorry
I know, yeah I know
Ooh, I know she wonít do that
Oh no, no!

She blew in and she blew me away
She got me up and she got me to stay
Now Iíll probably say everything will be fine
Just being heard, yeah
Or just a-taking our time

Itís the sweet south breeze
Come to take me home
Now itís the sweet south breeze
Come to take me home
Yeah, itís the sweet south breeze
Come to take me home
Home alright!
