Dwight Yoakam – I Sang Dixie lyrics

(dwight yoakam)

Chorus:
I sang dixie as he died
The people just walked on by as I cried
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride
So I sang dixie as he died

He said way down yonder in the land of cotton
Old times there aren't near as rotten as they are
On this damned old L. A. Street
Then he drew a dying breathe
And laid his head against my chest
Please lord, take his soul back home to dixie

Chorus:
I sang dixie as he died
The people just walked on by as I cried
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride
So I sang dixie as he died

He said listen to me son while you still can
Run back home to that southern land
Don't you see what life here has done to me?
Then he closed those old blue eyes
And fell limp against my side
No more pain, now he's safe back home in dixie

Chorus:
I sang dixie as he died
The people just walked on by as I cried
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride
So I sang dixie as he died
I sang dixie as he died
