Blood, Sweat & Tears – So Long Dixie lyrics

Lazy moon, Magnolia bloom perfume
And Dixie would receive
A lady fading fast
Still clinging to the past
But she had you hating to leave

So long, Dixie, sweet Dixie girl
You sure had style
Recalling times we've had
With all your good and bad
I'm glad I had you for awhile

When we get the blues
We just shine up our shoes
And head for Dixie's place
We sit ourselves right down

And pass the Bourbon round
Let Dixie on the case

So long, Dixie, sweet Dixie girl
You sure had style
Recalling times we've had
With all your good and bad
I'm glad I had you for awhile

Years go by, some memories fade and die
But, Dixie, you still shine
Now up here where it's cold
Folks don't understand your soul
Dixie, you're still part of mine

So long, Dixie, sweet Dixie girl
You sure had style
Recalling times we've had
With all your good and bad
I'm glad I had you for awhile

So long, Dixie, sweet Dixie girl
You sure had style
Recalling times we've had
With all your good and bad
I'm glad I had you for awhile

So long, Dixie, sweet Dixie girl
You sure had style
Recalling times we've had
With all your good and bad
I'm glad I had you for awhile

So long, Dixie
Oh, you sure had style
Recalling times we've had
With all your good and bad
I'm glad I had you for awhile

    Dixie is the crescent city (known as), new orleans, (where jerry fisher: vocals and jerry lacroix both hail from and now own clubs there). New orleans is indeed a "lady", whose magnolia trees are (indigenous to the area), fragrant and famous to it's luring "sultriness" of being the "big easy", where public alcohol consumption is legal and public lewdness and good times are common. I just returned from there, right before hurricane issac tried to wash her away (for the second time). So I'm glad I had her for awhile. You gotta go there before she leaves forever.
