- “But we loved with a love that was more than love— / I and my Annabel Lee— / With a love that the wingèd seraphs of Heaven Coveted her and me.” — “Annabel Lee,” Edgar Allan Poe
- “I lov’d thee from the earliest dawn, / When first I saw thy beauty’s ray,/ And will, until life’s eve comes on, / And beauty’s blossom fades away; / And when all things go well with thee, / With smiles and tears remember me. / I’ll love thee when thy morn is past, / And wheedling gallantry is o’er, / When youth is lost in age’s blast, / And beauty can ascend no more. / And when life’s journey ends with thee, / O, then look back and think of me.” — “Early Affection,” George Moses Horton
- “There’s no doubt in my mind / a Southern girl was born / for a man to hold, / to sway as one / to the sound of country music, / in his arms he embraces pure gold. / A man is born to love a Southern girl / blond hair, black hair, brown hair, / straight or curled, / a man is born to love a Southern girl.” — “Born to Love a Southern Girl,” Steven S. Walsky
