I Sang Dixie-crd  Dwight Yoakam

    Chorus   [G]I sang dixie as he died
people just walked on  by [G7] as I [C]cried
the bottle had a r[G]obbed him of all his r[G7]ebel  p[C]ried
and I sang d[D]ixie as he [G]died   [G]way down yonder in the land of cotton
o[C]ld  times there aint near as rotten as they a[G]re
on these damne old LA  s[D]treets
[G]he drew a dying breath lai[C]d his head agains my  chest
pl[G]ease dear lord take his so[D]ul back home to d[G]ixie  
Repeat Chorus

He said listen to me son while you still can
r[C]un back home to that southern land
don't you s[G]ee what life here  has done to [D]me
t[G]hey closed those old blue eyes a[C]nd he fell  limp
against my side no more p[G]ain now he's sa[D]fe back
home in  D[G]ixie.
