Dixie Lullaby  Pat Green

Dixie Lullaby - Pat Green
[C] [D] [G] [C] [D] [C]  
Verse One:
My father had [G]skin like [Am7]leather, [C]hands like [D]steel
From a [C]lifetime spent in cotton [G]field[D]s
And though he'd [G]come home tired and [Am7]dirty almost [C]every [D]night
He found the [C]strength to smile at me and [D]hold my mama tight
While that [Am]old transistor radio would play the [Em]Opry out in the hall
I'd sit and [C]watch their shadows glide across the [D]wall
And they danced to a [Am7]dixie l[D]ulla[G]by
A picture of [Am7]love beneath the [D]southern [G]sky
Oh my [F]what a [C]beautiful [G]life, just like a [Am7]dixie [D]lulla[G]by
Verse Two:
I left home at eighteen in a hand-me-down Chevrolet
Packed with my momma's cooking and my old man's stubborn ways
It was college, work and love and then the babies came
The youngest one got his granddaddy's name
And in the early morning hours when my children could not sleep
I'd rock them in my arms to a gentle beat
Chorus Two:
I sang them a dixie lullaby
Hush baby don't you start to cry
Oh my what a beautiful life, just like a dixie lullaby
[C] [D] [G] [C] [D] [C]  
Verse Three:
My father was a mountain of a man, that was the description that I gave
The morning that we laid him in his grave
There with my mama by his side, I said my last goodbye
To a man I thought would never die
And as I stood there in that field of amazing grace
Oh how the tears ran down my face
Chorus Three:
And I sang him a dixie lullaby
We'll meet again by and by
Oh my what a beautiful life, just like a dixie lullaby
Oh my [F]what a [C]beautiful [G]life, just like a [Am7]dixie [D]lulla[G]by
[C] [D] [C] [D] [G]
