From the recording A Girl Down In Mexico


Everybody told me she was bad news
I just did not realize how much I had to lose
She stole my heart, but I really paid my dues
When she stole my money, honey, and my blue suede shoes

I wandered for a while down love’s memory lane
But then a new love saved me from goin’ insane
She brought daylight to the dark; oh, sweet surrender
I’d know her anywhere, she’s pure Southern splendor

My baby is pure Southern splendor
She’s a from the heart real love sender
Rich or poor, she loves me tender
My baby is pure Southern splendor

She’s smart and strong, but just a little bit shy
I’d think she was an angel, Lord, if she could fly
I know she loves me; I just don’t know why
For her, I do anything; I’d lay right down and die

There’s splendor in her heart; there’s splendor in the air
When she’s around, there’s splendor everywhere

My baby is pure Southern splendor
