D
I sang Dixie as he died
                                          D7
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 ain?t near as rotten as they are
                                         A
On this damned old LA street
D
Then he drew his dying breath
G
And laid his head against my chest
              D                    A          D
Please Lord take his soul back home to Dixie

D
He said listen to me son while you still can
G
Run back home to that southern land
                  D                           A
Don?t you see what life here has done to me?

D
then he closed those big blue eyes
G
And fell limp against my side
                 D                     A      D
No more pain now he?s safe back home in Dixie
