SITS: "Saturday in the South" Lyrics & Song Background

Is there anything better than a Fall college football Saturday in the South?! I wrote "Saturday in the South" based on my experiences growing up with Florida State Seminole and Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket football. In fact, I wrote most of the original lyrics while enjoying tailgate parties at Georgia Tech games. College football is a religion...of sorts...for many and there really was not a big, bold, loud, proud, energetic, action-packed, fast and furious college football song out there so I decided to write one.

In 2010, I re-wrote the song with the help of several co-writers and in 2011, Tracy Lawrence recorded the track for release as a single. "Saturday in the South" has been featured in weekly college football game broadcasts and numerous college highlight reels! Turn it up!

Saturday in the South Lyrics

Copyright 2010

DEW SETTLES DOWN CAMPER'S PULLING UP

SMOKE IN THE WIND GRILLS WARMING UP

BEER ON ICE IT'S ALL KICKING OFF

A PARTY IN THE PARKING LOT

CHORUS

IT'S ALL ABOUT TAILGAITIN' FLAG WAIVIN' DRINK SHAKIN' FACE PAINTIN'

HELL RAISIN' CELEBRATIN' TRASH TALKIN' NO MISTAKIN'

SOUTH LOVING SPIRITUAL RITUAL KIND OF PASSION

IT'S A PIGSKIN WEEKEND ALMA MATER BIG BAND

BIGTIME BIG PLAYS PRIMETIME GAMEDAY

ALL DAY DIXIE WAY SATURDAY IN THE SOUTH

SPENT ALL SUMMER WAITING ON THE FALL

TIME TO GET IT ON TEAMS SQUARING OFF

IT'S  A KNOCK DOWN DRAG OUT SOUTHERN STYLE FIGHT

LIVING FOR THE BRAGGIN' RIGHTS

CHORUS

BRIDGE

REBELS VOULUNTEERS BULLDOGS WILDCATS

COMMODORES CRIMSON TIDE WAR EAGLE RAZORBACKS

HOOK 'EM HORNS SEMINOLES AGGIES RED RAIDERS

BAYOU BENGALS HURRICANE GATORS

CHORUS
