Dew settles down,Tents goin' up,
Smell of jim beam n',Grills warmin' up,
Bud's on ice, Radios' up loud,
Hank beltin' tunes out for the crowd.
It's about tailgatin', grill-makin', drink-shakin', face-paintin',
Roof-raisin', celebratin', love-makin', hangover-achin',
South-lovin', no-mistakin', ritual kind of passion!
It's gameday, pigskin, alma-mater, big band,
Fight songs, flag-waving, history-makin', stadium-shakin',
Memory-takin', "big-day", saturdays in the south!
Toe meets leather,
Teams square off,
Coaches yelling orders n',
Players making calls,
Bourbon's mixin', bands boomin', crowds chantin', sun' fadin',
Wouldn't be any day but saturday, in the south!
We love bulldogs, yellow jackets, gators n' seminoles,
Volunteers, mountaineers, sooner schooner, tiger's paw,
Tarheels, gamecocks, hook 'em horns, n' wildcats,
Red raiders, tide's role, war eagle, razorbacks,
It's saturday, all-day, dixie-way, in the south.
It's big-time...big plays...primetime...gameday!,
Saturdays, all-day, dixie-way, in the south!
