Guess I got what I deserve
Kept you waiting there, too long my love
All that time, without a word
Didn't know you'd think, that I'd forget, or I'd regret
The special love I have for you, my baby blue

All the days became so long
Did you really think, I'd do you wrong
Dixie, when I let you go
Thought you'd realize, that I would know, I would show
The special love I have for you, my baby blue

What can I do, what can I say
Except that I want you by my side
How can I show, you, show me a way
Don't you know, the times I tried
Guess that's all I have to say

Except the feeling just gets stronger, everyday
Just one thing, before I go

Take good care, baby, let me know, let it grow
The special love, you have for me, my dixie dear

    General CommentThis song is written about a girl named Dixie whom vocalist Pete Ham met while on a 1971 U.S. Tour stop in Wichita, Kansas. When the group returned home to England, they broke up, but maintained that they would keep in touch with each other. The line "All that time without a word, Didn't know you'd think that I'd forget or I'd regret, The special love I had for you, my baby blue" was written because he hadn't seen her for a few months and he thought Dixie was angry. And the rest is self-explanatory. He loved Dixie!

    My OpinionNot your typical song by a rocker to some chick he met on the road, of which there are plenty. When he gives the "chick" a name, and the name is Dixie, I don't know why, but it gets me every time, and my eyes well up. And its perfect use in the final Breaking Bad scene elevated it even further. A truly superior song.
