This is on the 10cd box set.

(e) imaheadin back to dixie,
Thats the (a) place I long to (e) be,
Where the (a) cotton grows and the (e) swanee flows,
Thats (f#7) home sweet home to (b7) me,
(e) where they meet you and they greet you,
With the (a) sweetest how you all,
Well (e) shut my mouth, Im aheadin south,
On the (b7) dixie cannon- (e) ball.

Chorus:
(e) on the dixie cannonball, on the (a) dixie cannonball,
Just (e) listen to the whistle, itll (f#7) thrill you one and (b7) all,
And I (e) know theres some one waitin, with the (a) sweetest how you all,
Well (e) shut my mouth, Im aheadin south, on the (b7) dixie cannon- (e)
Ball.

(e) when I cross them smokey mtns. Ill be (a) countin every (e) mile,
When the (a) whistle blows, Ill be on my (e) toes,
And Ill (f#7) shuffle down the (b7) aisle,
And I (e) know Ill not be lonesome,
When I (a) see them treetops tall,
Im coming (e) through on the big choo-choo,
On the (b7) dixie cannon- (e) ball.

Repeat chorus:

(e) yes, Im goin back to dixie, thats the (a) place I long to (e) be,
Where the (a) cotton grows and the (e) swanee flows,
Thats (f#7) home sweet home to (b7) me,
(e) where they meet you and they greet you,
With the (a) sweetest how you all,
Well (e) shut my mouth, Im aheadin south,
On the (b7) dixie cannon- (e) ball.

Repeat chorus:
