The alligator lays on The banks of the riverbed And if you didn't know any better You'd swear he's dead Now these are a few things I'm in love with A small part of the reason I go back To Carolina, Mississippi Florida, gorgeous Georgia Now if you think I'm happy down there You're on the right track [CHORUS] And you ain't just whistling Dixie You ain't just slapping your knee I'm a grandson of the Southland An heir to the Confederacy You ain't just whistling Dixie 'Cause the cattle call's calling me home So put me down there where I wanna be Plant my feet with Robert E. Lee Bury my bones under a cypress tree And never let me roam The cotton balls gleam and the Cows give cream for the babies sake And Pa comes in, full of gin And he's mean as a rattlesnake And then the well runs dry And we cry and cuss the garden hose And Mama draws a bucketful of creek water Just to wash our clothes Now these are a few things I'm in love with A small part of the reason I go back To Carolina, Mississippi Florida, gorgeous Georgia Now if you think I'm happy down there You're on the right track [repeat CHORUS]
