E  B7  E
INTRO



       E 
I sang Dixie, as he died.
                                          E7
The people just walked on by, as I cried.
               A                           E
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride.
              B7       E    
So I sang Dixie, as he died.



         E 
He said 'Way down yonder in the land of cotton,
A                                            E
Old times there ain't near as rotten as they are
                        B7
On this damned old L.A. street'.
E                            A
 Then he drew a dying breath, laid his head against my chest.
       E              B7                E
Please Lord, take his soul back home to Dixie.


      
       E 
I sang Dixie, as he died.
                                          E7
The people just walked on by, as I cried.
               A                           E
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride.
              B7       E    
So I sang Dixie, as he died.



E   E7  A  E  B7  E
INSTRUMENTAL



         E        
He said 'Listen to me son, while you still can,
A    
Run back home to that Southern land.
          E                              B7
Don't you see what life here has done to me?'
E                                   A
 Then he closed those old blue eyes, and fell limp against my side.
        E              B7                E
No more pain, now he's safe back home in Dixie.



       E 
I sang Dixie, as he died.
                                          E7
The people just walked on by, as I cried.
               A                           E
The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride.
              B7       E    
So I sang Dixie, as he died.
           B7       A    E  B7  E
I sang Dixie, as he died.
