Listening “Ever South”

” [I’ll] Tell you stories of our fathers and the glories of our house
Always told a little slower, ever south
—Drive By Truckers, “Ever South”

It’s what we Southerners do: tell our stories. To our children, to the new listeners, to each other, to ourselves. Our stories tell us who we are, whose we are, and how we belong.

Sometimes I think that’s how you can find a Southerner… they’re forever telling stories.
