Lyrics

I sang Dixie as he died People just walked on by as I cried The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride So I sang Dixie as he died He said way down yonder in the land of cotton Old times there ain't near as rotten as they are On this damned old L.A. street Then he drew a dying breath And laid his head against my chest Please Lord take his soul back home to Dixie

Chorus He said listen to me son while you still can Run back home to that Southern land Don't you see what life here has done to me? Then he closed those old blue eyes And fell limp against my side No more pain, now he's safe back home in Dixie Chorus I sang Dixie as he died People just walked on by As i cried The bottle had robbed him of his rebel pride so i sang dixie as he died i sang dixie as he died
