Dixieland Delight
By Alabama

G D Em C G D C Cm G
      
              G                  D
Rollin' down a backwoods Tennessee byway
Em             C
One arm on the wheel
           G              D
Holdin' my lover with the other
  Em                   C
A sweet, soft Southern thrill
            G                      D
Worked hard all week, got a little jingle
     Em                 C
On a Tennessee Saturday night
              G             D
Couldn't feel better, I'm together
        C    Cm       G
With my Dixieland delight


Chorus:
         D
Spend my dollar
          Em                             C
Park in a holler 'neath the mountain moonlight
         G
Hold her up tight
              D 
Make a little lovin'
                Em                      C
A little turtle-dovin' on a mason-Dixon night
        Em           C
Fits my life, Oh, so right
   Cm          G
My Dixieland delight


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


Chorus

Solo

Chorus - Change to key of A
         E
Spend my dollar
          F#m                            D
Park in a holler 'neath the mountain moonlight
         A
Hold her up tight
              E 
Make a little lovin'
                F#m                     D
A little turtle-dovin' on a mason-Dixon night
        F#m          D
Fits my life, Oh, so right
   Dm          A
My Dixieland delight

hey did a certian part of the song go up a half step ?

-txkidcrisp | 11/10/2003
does anyone know the correct chords for the key change at the end of
the song when it speeds up? I've been guessing for months.

this song is great .. i saw alabama play in houston at the rodeo....
it was an awesome show

-rcernoch | 12/25/2003
it speeds up at the change and the notes are F#/G#/A#
-mason55 | 2/13/2005
Pre-Solo chords are: F G A (2x) then the solo is: A E F#m D A E D Dm A (the same as the intro chords just one step higher). Hope this helps.

I found a really cool cover video on YouTube of this song. He plays it with rougher, Red Dirt/Texas Country style, not quite Alabama but I think it's pretty dang cool, good voice too! Hes gotta bunch of other covers on his channel also. Here's the link for anyone interested:

If that link didn't work just go on YouTube and search: Amonsiball Dixieland Delight Acoustic Cover
