Lyrics to Bright Sunny South :

From the bright sunny south to the war, I was sent, E'er the days of my boyhood, I scarcely had spent. From it's cool shady forests and deep flowing streams, Ever fond in my mem'ry and sweet in my dreams.

Oh, my dear little sister, I still see her tears. When I had to leave home in our tender years. And my sweet gentle mother, so dear to my heart, It grieved me sincerely when we had to part.

Said my kind-hearted father as he took my hand: "As you go in defence of our dear native land, "Son, be brave but show mercy whenever you can. "Our hearts will be with you, 'til you 'turn again."

In my bag there's a bible to show me the way, Through my twelfth year on earth and to Heaven some day. I will shoulder my musket and brandish my sword, In defence of this land and the word of the Lord. From the bright sunny south to the war, I was sent, E'er the days of my boyhood, I scarcely had spent. From it's cool shady forests and deep flowing streams, Ever fond in my mem'ry and sweet in my dreams.

Oh, my dear little sister, I still see her tears. When I had to leave home in our tender years. And my sweet gentle mother, so dear to my heart, It grieved me sincerely when we had to part.

Said my kind-hearted father as he took my hand: "As you go in defence of our dear native land, "Son, be brave but show mercy whenever you can. "Our hearts will be with you, 'til you 'turn again."

In my bag there's a bible to show me the way, Through my twelfth year on earth and to Heaven some day. I will shoulder my musket and brandish my sword, In defence of this land and the word of the Lord.

Alison Krauss and Union Station are the best!

And the award for “Meaningful Lyric in Song” goes to... Little Richard for the song “Tutti Frutti.”

Oh wait... nevermind.

Dan Tyminski on lead vocal ... he’s really good, but I’d rather hear Alison sing ;-).

The Steeldrivers, with their original lead vocalist. They’re okay with the new guy, but not up to the first album ... average, instead of unique.

Vince has a great voice. I like Ricky Skaggs, though.
