Southern Women they're so pretty yeah, they've got fire in their eyes and a touch of scarlet deep in their soul.

THe old manners and decorum-are they ashes of the past or are the memories that last, the ones kept alive by the spirit of the Southern Woman?
Southern Women they're so pretty yeah, they've got fire in their eyes and a touch of scarlet deep in their soul, southern breezes smell of Jasmine and magnolia,but now the past is gone and the present here:but dooes the stench of black powder and death still linger in the air for the Southern Woman?
