A Dmaj7 A The night they drove old Dixie down Dmaj7 And the bells were ringing A Dmaj7 A The night they drove old Dixie down Dmaj7 And the people were singing A F#m Esus4 D A They went la la la la la la la la la la la la la. Back with my wife in Tennessee when one day she called to me Virgil, quick come see there goes Robert E. Lee! Now I don t mind chopping wood and I don t care if the money s no good. Just take what you need and leave the rest but they should never have taken the very best. Like my father before me I will work the land And like my brother above me who took a rebel stand He was just eighteen proud and brave but a Yankee laid him in his grave I swear by the mud below my feet you can t raise a Caine back up when he s in defeat.
