MASON DIXON LINE  (1994)


Mason and Dixon drew a line between me and you
It’s gonna stay there for a long, long time no matter what I try to do
Civil War couldn’t erase it, it’s still so easy to find
Our even edges touch along that Mason Dixon Line

The battles that attracted me were the ones that pulled me away
“A Southern girl will break your heart” I can still hear you say
Your balmy winds and tupelo are so far over the rainbow
From maple trees and hillsides long covered up with frozen snow

Follow your heart, you walk in circles
Follow your mind and you march in a line
And the way I’m spinnin’ around and round’
Means my heart won out this time

Your heart belongs in Tennessee for oh so many reasons
While mine fits best in New England where even change the seasons
So many things will ebb and flow across the waters of time
But one thing ever-constant is that Mason Dixon Line

Follow your heart, you lose your reason
Follow your head and you lose your rhyme
And the way these verses are flowin’ out
Means my heart won out this time

Mason and Dixon drew a line between you and me
It’s gonna stay there for a long, long time no matter who I try to be
But I will always feel your touch and dream back on the time
When you and I first met below the Mason Dixon Line

Appomattox couldn’t erase it
It’s still so easy to find
Our even edges divide along
That Mason Dixon Line
That Mason Dixon Line
