Jackson, Alan - Small Town Southern Man Lyrics

Born the middle son of a farmer
And a small town Southern man
Like his daddy's daddy before him
Brought up workin' on the land
Fell in love with a small town woman
And they married up and settled down
Natural way of life if you're lucky
For a small town Southern man

First there came four pretty daughters
For this small town Southern man
Then a few years later came another
A boy, he wasn't planned
Seven people livin' all together
In a house built with his own hands
Little words with love and understandin'
From a small town Southern man

And he bowed his head to Jesus
And he stood for Uncle Sam
And he only loved one woman
(He) was always proud of what he had
He said his greatest contribution
Is the ones you leave behind
Raised on the ways and gentle kindness
Of a small town Southern man
(Raised on the ways and gentle kindness)
(Of a small town Southern man)

Callous hands told the story
For this small town Southern man
He gave it all to keep it all together
And keep his family on his land
Like his daddy, years wore out his body
Made it hard just to walk and stand
You can break the back
But you can't break the spirit
Of a small town Southern man

[Repeat Chorus]

Finally death came callin'
For this small town Southern man
He said it's alright 'cause I see angels
And they got me by the hand
Don't you cry, and don't you worry
I'm blessed, and I know I am
'Cause God has a place in Heaven
For a small town Southern man

[Repeat Chorus]

  54. Scream Scream Scream

    Best Country Singer Ever..

  55. Galien Garabiol

    Très belle chanson et jolie mélodie mélancolique ! Paris, France.

  56. Marshall Bates

    Pro life and pro traditional marriage "loved only one woman"

    Brian Liu

    Amen to that.

    John Commer

    Pro life, pro traditional marriage, pro Donald Trump, pro police, and pro second amendment. Also “loved one woman”. I don’t want to argue I’m just speaking my mind.


    @John Commer I love this song, and am pro-traditional marriage. But I don't understand why you bring in Trump, who is a very poor example of this. In fact, he cheapens it for the rest of us. The atheists look at him as more evidence that believers are dumb and crazy.

    J Y

    @OhokoEast He is definitely a polar opposite of small town Southern man.....

  57. Micky May

    What happened to dances like the one in this video? Darn concerts anyway!!

    I didn't grow up listening to Country or listen to it regularly, but some days I'm in the mood for it and I'm all about it.
