Southern Dixie Flyer
Recorded by Marty Robbins
Written by Joe Babcock

C
At the station house one day was a lady old and gray
F C G7
I could tell her heart was feeling sad and low
C
With the teardrops in her eyes she was trying not to cry
F C G7 C
I determined then her story I would know

G7 F C
I answered the words in this sad sad tale I heard
F C G7
Of a mother who has lost her only child
C
Yes they taken her away these words I heard her say
F C G7 C
And they're traveling on that Southern Dixie Flyer


She was only sweet sixteen and the only joy I seen
F C G7
What God has given now He takes away
C
She'll be taken home again on that southbound railroad train
F C G7 C
To be laid there with her daddy in the grave

G7 F C
I've no money of my own I can't even take her home
F C G7
But I want to be there with my heart's desire
C
But then she could say no more as the echo drifted o'er
F C G7 C
Twas the whistle of that Southern Dixie Flyer


As the train pulled out of sight and the day became as night
F C G7
Was a scene to bring a tear to any eye
C
Just the lady all alone not a thing to call her own
F C G7 C
But some memories from the better days gone by

G7 F C
I knew right away there was nothing I could say
F C G7
Too soon her heart had dried those tear dimmed eyes
C
So I turned to walk away from the lady old and gray
F C G7 C
Whose heart was on that Southern Dixie Flyer

Repeat #4
