Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


dixieland delight  Alabama



[G] Rollin' down-a backwoods
    Tennessee by-[D]-way
[Em]One arm on the [C] wheel
    Holdin' my [G] lover
    With the [D] other
[Em]A sweet, soft Southern [C] thrill
    Worked hard all [Em] week
    Got a little [D] jingle
    On a [Em] Tennessee Saturday [C] night
    Couldn't feel [G] better
    I'm to-[D]-gether with my [Cm] Dixieland Delight[G]

Cho:Spend my [D] dollar
    Park in a [Em] holler 'neath the mountain moon-[C]-light
    Hold her [G] up tight
    Make a little [D] lovin'
    A little turtle-[Em]-dovin' on a mason-Dixon [C] night
    Fits my [Em] life
    Oh, so [C] right
    My [Cm] Dixieland De-[G]-light

A simplified version of the solo after 1st chorus (if anybody knows it note 
for note, PLEASE let me know):

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B-----------0(p.m) 0(p.m)-3-(0)-0---------------------------------------------
G---------0------------------------2----------------------------------0(pm)---
D--0-(2)------------------------------------------------0-2-----0-(2)---------
A-------------------------------------0-2-0---------0-2-----------------------
E-------------------------------------------3-0-2-3---------------------------

                                                                             
E------------------------0--3--6--5--3--7--5--3-----------then-either:---15,  
B-0(pm)-3-(0)-0-------3----------------------------------or do a G-harmonic   
G---------------2-------------------------------------------------------------
D-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
A-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Verse 2: (same chords as the first)

White-tail buck deer
Munchin' on clover
Red-tail hawk
Sittin' on a limb
Chubby old groundhog
Croakin' bullfrog
Free as a feelin' in the wind
Homegrown country girl
Gonna give me a whirl
on a Tennessee Saturday night
Lucky as a seven
Livin' in heaven
with my Dixieland Delight

(repeat cho)

a few strange chord progressions follow the 2nd chorus; something like

C, D, Em  a couple of times, and I believe the key changes to A (so, of 
course, either capo the 2nd fret now, or play all the chords a whole step 
higher than they are written here)

a fiddle solo ensues, and the tempo increases and they fade out, singing 
verse one again.

Doug "I love mail" Smith
