Verse 1:
Dixie was the pride of Alaba[G]ma
I[G] met her on a lonesome midnight tr[C]ain
Ro[D]llin' slowly out of Union [G]Station
S[G]he was staring out the window at the r[D]ain
Verse 2:
W[G]ell Dixie was from sunny Alabama
T[G]hose old steel rails would roll to Birm[C]ingham
M[D]obile, her final desti[G]nation
I[G] looked down at the ticket in her h[D]and
Southbound tr[C]ain it ain't y[D]ou I know that done[G] her wrong
Say ag[C]ain that you s[D]een it coming a[G]ll along
A[G]ll that she knew those sweet m[C]emories it's true
Dixie d[G]arling caught her s[D]outhbound tr[G]ain
Verse 3:
D[G]ixie asked if I'd been to Alabama
H[G]er voice was thick like some old southern ni[C]ght
And ma[D]ybe for the sake of convers[G]ation
I[G] said back in '88 or '[D]89
Verse 4:
S[G]he said her daddy's fields were full of cotton
B[G]y the river that she swam in as a ch[C]ild
L[D]ord she loved those sweet magnolia [G]blossoms
A[G]nd that good ol' Honeysuckle growing [D]wild
Verse 5:
D[G]ixie told me how she got to Denver
A[G] southern gal who coudn't stand the c[C]old
She f[D]ell in love and left Mobile for[G]saken
M[G]istaken for a dusty pot of [D]gold
Verse 6:
D[G]ixie let the pieces fall together
A[G]nd painted up this picture in my m[C]ind
Mobile, Ala[D]bama was a-c[G]allin' her back
A[G]nd the Pride of Alabama was on t[D]ime
