I Sang Dixie-crd

Dwight Yoakam

 G
    Chorus   I sang dixie as he died
 G7C
people just walked on  by  as I cried
 GG7C
the bottle had a robbed him of all his rebel  pried
 DGG
and I sang dixie as he died   way down yonder in the land of cotton
 CG
old  times there aint near as rotten as they are
 D
on these damne old LA  streets
 GC
 he drew a dying breath laid his head agains my  chest
 GDG
please dear lord take his soul back home to dixie  

Repeat Chorus

He said listen to me son while you still can
 C
run back home to that southern land
 GD
don't you see what life here  has done to me
 GC
they closed those old blue eyes and he fell  limp
 GD
against my side no more pain now he's safe back
 G
home in  Dixie.
