Southampton Girl

Waiting at the station just before the rain
Across the empty street you see across the empty plain and it take you
Back into the country where you think you’ll touch the sky
You reach into the silence, feels just like goodbye and it takes you
Far away, hey, hey, hey
Don’t it take you far away, hey, hey, hey

She’s a Southampton girl, she knows what that means
She’ll take what she wants, she’ll do as she please
She can’t be tied down, she’s nobody’s fool
Oh she comes and she goes and everyone knows
She’s a Southampton girl

Sitting at the window you swear you hear the rain
Crashing on the casement and screaming out her name and it takes you
Deep into the mountains where you hear her laughter ring
A wind up from the southwest makes the tall grass sing and it takes you
Far away, hey, hey, hey
Don’t it take you far away, hey, hey, hey

She’s a Southampton girl, she knows what that means
She’ll take what she wants, she’ll do as she please
She can’t be tied down, she’s nobody’s fool
Oh she comes and she goes and everyone knows
She’s a Southampton girl

But she cries at night
Still she shines so bright
See her shine, let her shine, let her shine

She’s a Southampton girl, she knows what that means
She’ll take what she wants, she’ll do as she please
She can’t be tied down, she’s nobody’s fool
Oh she comes and she goes and everyone knows
She’s a Southampton girl
