I Sang Dixie Lyrics

Artist: Dwight Yoakam
Album: Buenas Noches From A Lonely Room

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 ain't near as rotten as they are
On this damned old L.A. street
Then he drew a dying breath
And laid his head against my chest
Please Lord take his soul back home to Dixie


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


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

One of the best country songs ever recorded. This song brings tears to my eyes and funny familiar forgotten feelings to my guts. I love Dwight.

I don't know how Dwight can get
through this song without breaking
down and crying. I've tryed it
numerous times and I can't make it!

With no disrespect to our northern brethren, this song speaks directly to the heart of the South. "Dixie" and "Rebel Pride" are integral parts of our southern heritage. Thanks, Dwight, for reminding us that, no matter where we may be, our home will always be Dixie.
