I Sang Dixie
Dwight Yoakam Lyrics


I sang Dixie as he died
The people just walked on by as I cried
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride
I sang Dixie as he died

He said way down yonder in the land of cotton
Old times there ain't near as rotten as they are
On this damned old L.A. street
he drew a dying breath
laid his head against my chest
Please Lord take his soul back home to Dixie

I sang Dixie as he died
The people just walked on by as I cried
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride
So I sang Dixie as he died

He said listen to me son while you still can
Run back home to that Southern land
Don't you see what life here has done to me
Then he closed those old blue eyes
And fell limp against my side
No more pain, now he's safe back home in Dixie

I sang Dixie as he died
The people just walked on by as I cried
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride
So I sang Dixie as he died
I sang Dixie as he died

I sang Dixie as he died.
The people just walked on by as I cried.
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride,
So I sang Dixie as he died.
He said way down yonder in the land of cotton
Old times there ain't near as rotten as they are
On this damned old L.A. street.
Then he drew a dying breath
And laid his head against my chest.
Please. Lord, take his soul back home to Dixie.
I sang Dixie as he died.
The people just walked on by as I cried.
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride,
So I sang Dixie as he died.
He said, "Listen to me, Son, while you still can.
Run back home to that Southern land.
Don't you see what life here has done to me?"
Then he closed those old gray eyes
And fell limp against my side.
No more pain, now he's safe back home in Dixie.
I sang Dixie as he died.
The people just walked on by as I cried.
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride,
So I sang Dixie as he died.
I sang Dixie as he died...

Why is Dixie a dirty word now? It's the south and always will be.

Seriously doubt it's a bad word xcept to man bun boy fems, feminist nazi's, Bernie butt boy children that think socialism is social media, gender confused tards, race baiters and their drone followers, but...........they don't count

Because liberalism is a mental disorder.

@Ryan Lee Dixie is a people? Huh? Dixie is a place... also known as the South! Anything below the Mason-Dixon Line is the South. They got Dixie from the name Dixon! Facts!

The Dixie flag means the southern way of life. It is far removed from the civil war slavery ideals. Period. That blaze stands for Dixieland, south of the Mason-dixon. It stands NOT for pride of race or skin tone, but FOR church, family, Mississippi delta blues and Memphis rocknroll to Nashville Country to Texas Swing. From Elvis to Martin Luther King. From black Cajuns to the general Lee. From Appalachian hillbilly to some of the hardest horse riding African American Texas Cowboys you will ever see.
The south welcomes every color and creed that will love it back the same.

Wrong! That's wishful thinking.
