Dwight Yoakam

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

He said way down yonder in the land of cotton
G                                                  D
Old times there aināt near as rotten as they are
On this damned old LA street
Then he drew his dying breath
And laid his head against my chest
              D                    A                  D
Please Lord take his soul back home to Dixie

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