(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):
B-----------0(p.m) 0(p.m)-3-(0)-0---------------------------------------------
B-0(pm)-3-(0)-0-------3----------------------------------or do a G-harmonic

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.
