Black or white, blues or hillbilly
It's got a rockin' rhythm knockin' me silly
Every time I hear it, I'm as good as gone
Up or down, fast or real slow
That's all ya hear on my radio
I never get tired I can listen to it all night long

It scared a lot of people when it first hit town
They didn't understand it, they were puttin' it down
But it's lasted up until today and we're still rockin' around
And when they look back tryin' to figure it out
Where it came from, and what it's all about
It didn't come from outer space, it came from the south

It came from real hard work, sweat from the brow
From poor people just pushin' a plow
They made up a rhythm tryin' to pass the time
It came from the truth, it came from the heart
It came from an old flattop guitar
On a Saturday night, underneath the 'ol moonshine

It scared a lot of people when it first hit town
They didn't understand it, they were puttin' it down
But it's lasted up until today and we're still rockin' around
And when they look back tryin' to figure it out
Where it came from, and what it's all about
It didn't come from outer space, it came from the south

It scared a lot of people when it first hit town
They didn't understand it, they were puttin' it down
But it's lasted up until today and we're still rockin' around
And when they look back tryin' to figure it out
Where it came from, and what it's all about
It didn't come from outer space, it came from the south

It didn't come from outer space, it came from the south
