Take your shoes off’n set a spell.
widjadidja….as in “you didn’t bring it wid ja did ya? This is actually more AL than LA!
Bless your heart.
“hey y’all watch this!” because it usually involves beer beforehand, a spectacular failure and hospital trip afterward!
In my experience, that phrase is usually followed by “Here… hold my beer”. And yeah, it precedes some sort of spectacular and often painful result.
Well Butter my Biscuits!
Oh my gravy !
“She’s a cute lil heifer.”
“That dawg will hunt.”
“Bless his/her heart.”
“Hot Damn” Except it sounds more like “Hotam”.

“Hurry up ya’ll, Piggly Wiggly’s bout to close” ๐Ÿ™‚
Close contest between “hornswaggled”, “What in tarnation?”, or “pigbuttle” (which is the noun form of “hornswaggled”).
“can I call ya darlin”
holy moly wata ya doin ?? Im gonna slap ur ayes rite outta ur head..
That’s their tale, I am gonna sit on mine!

Here in NC there’s: carryin’ (aka driving), I’m carryin’ my mom to the doctor today. When the kids friends ask if I can “carry them home”, I reply with “No sorry, you’re too heavy.” There’s also: “get gone”, You better have some of that pie before it gets gone. Another favorite is: “Put it up” (aka put away or hand in). The teachers are … See Morefamous for saying, “Put up your homework. or, You better put up your phone before I take it away.” And the ultimate, said by many school principals, “On tomorrow”. “The baseball game will start at 4pm on tomorrow.” I sure miss the way they talk normally back in NY.

Bless his heart when you mean he is so dumb he just can’t help himself
who stuck the burr under your saddle?
“Can I ax y’all a question?”
“I reckon” and the word “vittles”
I’m “fixin” to do …… and “pull the door to” (Where are you gonna pull it to?)
Lol! I say “Bless your/his/her heart” ALL the time ๐Ÿ˜€
“Shugah dumplin’ ” is a fav– also, when something is a mess it “looks like a bull’s ass sewn up with a grapevine” or “scattered from hell to breakfast.” When something is surprising “Well don’t that just take the rag off the bush.”
Somewhere down yonder.
All phrases my grandma said; “I reckon”, “what in Sam Hill?” “stop that carrying on”, “pull up yer britches”, ya don’t have lick of sense”, “he’s ornery” and “if I had my druthers, I’d druther not pick a faverite. She never said these together like that. I swear on a stack of bibles.
