Capo on 2


G
Way down in Dixie, oh do they miss me

C                      G
Down along the Dixie line

G
Banjoes are strummin’, horseflies are hummin’

A7                 C
Ripe melons on the vine

    Em           G          C         A7
The gold and the gray weeds sing look away

    G              D       G
Way down along the Dixie line


I spent my childhood walking the wildwood
Down along the Dixie line
Freight trains are squallin’, eyeballs are ballin’
Four engines at a time
I was so happy with Momma and Pappy
Down along the Dixie line


G                            C
Can't you hear those drivers wail

          G                      D
Can't you see those bright rails shine

      G                   C
Gonna catch that fireball man

          G         D     G
Leave the northland far behind


[Solo over verse chords]


A river of whiskey flows down in Dixie
Down along the Dixie line
They pulled up the tracks now, I can't go back now
Can't hardly keep from crying
Oh do they miss me way down in Dixie
Down along the Dixie line

G                            C
Can't you hear those drivers wail

          G                      D
Can't you see those bright rails shine

      G                   C
Wanna catch that fireball man

          G         D     G
Leave the northland far behind...

C   A7   G              D       G
      ...Down along the Dixie line
