Dear Southern Gals

Dear Southern Gals Savannah - oh honey You beautiful Belle Your locks long and loose And silver as well Muted mementos Of suffering of pain Of tears you have wept Long rivers of rain Georgia - oh honey You dear southern Belle Your story is cruel And shameful as well Your tresses have witnessed In somber green gray The heartbreak the pain The ship of that day Oh Savannah oh Georgia You dear Southern Belles We hear you forever Plead guilty as well Now savour your beauty The new dawn can’t wait Start combing your hair It’s time for a braid Nicole de Jager April 2018
