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
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
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
REBELS VOULUNTEERS BULLDOGS WILDCATS
COMMODORES CRIMSON TIDE WAR EAGLE RAZORBACKS
HOOK 'EM HORNS SEMINOLES AGGIES RED RAIDERS
BAYOU BENGALS HURRICANE GATORS
