    Lyrics

    just like the way that you ran to wine
    when they made the new milk turn
    Jesus, a friend in the better times
    let your mother's bible burn
    freedom, a fever you suffered through
    and the dog drank from your cup
    frozen, the river that baptized you
    and the horse died standing up

    but when a southern anthem rings
    she will buckle to that sound
    when that southern anthem sings
    it will lay her burdens down

    just like the way you lost your guns
    when they cut the clothesline loose
    Jesus, a friend of the weaker ones
    said, 'i'm all they stole from you'
    freedom, a thistle that withered dry
    still a baby in your hands
    frozen, the ground refused to die
    and the guitar rose again

    but when that southern anthem rings
    she will buckle to the sound
    when that southern anthem sings
    it will lay her burdens down
