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
