“Dear Southern Gals” by Nicole de Jager

Dear Southern Gals

Savannah – oh honey

You beautiful Belle

Your locks long and loose

And silver as well

Muted mementos of

Suffering of pain

Of tears you have wept

Long rivers of rain

 

Georgia – oh honey

You dear southern Belle

Your story is cruel

And shameful as well

Your tresses have witnessed

In somber green gray

The heartbreak the pain

The ship of that day

 

Oh Savannah oh Georgia

You dear Southern Belles

We hear you forever

Plead guilty as well

Now savour your beauty

The new dawn can’t wait

Start combing your hair

It’s time for a braid
