Back To Dixie
Recorded by Tony Rice
Written by Doyle Lawson, Johnny Goble, Leroy Drumm

I’m goin’ down to the Cumberland River

In the state of Tennessee
Am C G
Gonna walk the ground where I spent my childhood
D7 G
I’m goin’ back back to Dixie

I spent my life a foot loose drifter
D7 G
Like a gypsy is I’m a travelin’ man

Can’t find no place where I’m contented
D7 G
Can’t find no folks I understand

Ain’t got no wife ain’t got no children

At least that I know about

And if I should die right where I’m standing
D7 G
No one would know I’m checking out

Repeat #1

Come drink my wine and take my coffee
D7 G
You can have my beans they’re in the can

I’m gonna go back to where I started
D7 G
Gonna end my life a happy man

Somethings up with a new tomorrow
D7 G
But every day is just like the last

So I’ve got to keep you
D7 G
So I’ll go home and find at last

Repeat #1 x2

D7 G
Back back to Dixie
