"Dixie" as written by John Robert Durrill and James Sanford Jr. Pinkard....
When I was a little girl in Dixie
I used to chase the fireflies
Then I grew up and started chasing the guys
Teenage romance what just the thing
Till I got in a family way
Now mama only working in a cheap cafe


Waiting on tables and passing myself around
Dixie girl, you're the small talk
In a small talking town
I fall in love every day with someone
Who ends up just driving away
While I dreaming I with him
Going down that west bound highway

One night a man walks in and smiles
And orders coffee black
Took me for a ride in his brand new cadillac
Told me he loved me with all his heart
I told him I loved him too
He said goodbye Dixie, I'll be back for you


Now all I do is read those
Hollywood photograph magazines
Work my shifts for tips
And live alone in my dreams
I'm a Dixie girl who prays
Some day she'll be a Delta queen
Find a good man,
Who'll raise me and my baby

[Chorus: x 2]
