And there's something bout the Southland in the springtime
Where the waters flow with confidence and reason
Though I miss her when I'm gone it won't ever be too long
Till I'm home again to spend my favorite season
When God made me born a yankee He was teasin'
There's no place like home and none more pleasin'
Than the Southland in the springtime
from a song by the Indigo Girls that plays in my head a lot these days.
