The Lyrics

A song parodying Sweet Home Alabama. This song is written about Southern New Jersey or as I like to call it the "forgotten Jersey."
"Sweet Home South Jersey"

Big wheels keep on turning
Carry me home to see my kin
Singing songs about South Jersey
I miss Camden County once again
And they think it’s a sin, yes

Well I heard North Jersey sing about her
Well, I heard ole Corzine put her down
Well, I hope Corzine and North Jersey will remember
A Southern man don't need them around anyhow

Sweet home South Jersey
Where the skies are actually clear
Sweet Home South Jersey
Lord, I'm coming home to you

In Barrington they love the gov'nor (boo, boo, boo)
Now they all did what they could do
Now Bridgegate does not bother me
Does your conscience bother you?
Tell me true

Sweet home South Jersey
Where the skies are blue
Sweet Home Southern New Jersey
Lord, I'm coming home to you
Here I come Camden County

Now Cherry Hill had got the Racetrack
And they've been known to pick a race or two
Lord it got me off of so much
It picked me up when I was feeling blue
Now how about you?

Sweet home South Jersey
Where the skies are so blue
Sweet Home South Jersey
Lord, I'm coming home to you

Sweet home Southern New Jersey
Oh sweet home baby
Where the skies are so blue
And the guvnor's true
Sweet Home Southern Jersey
Lord, I'm coming home to you
Yea, yea Wildwood’s got the answer
The Garden State Race Track was a South Jersey popular spot. After a fire in 1980 South Jersey politicians wanted to rebuild it, however the state chose to fix or buildup the Meadowlands sport complex up North. This was when Local South Jersey politicians had gotten the idea to try and secede from North Jersey when every county except for Ocean County voted to do so.

All it's missing is references to my fave vacation spots, Ocean City and Atlantic City. SO many good times.
