      About "I Sang Dixie"

      Lyrics for Dwight Yoakam - "I Sang 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 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

      [Chorus]

      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
