Blues For Dixie
Words and Music by O.W. Mayo
Oh, if you've ever seen that ole Mississippi,
The Queen of the delta land
Then you'll understand
Why I've got the blues for Dixie.
If you've ever been to Tennessee when
Those old cotton fields were white
In pale moon light
Then you've had the blues for Dixie.
If you've seen the glamour of an Alabama
Moon shinin in the sky,
If you've got a baby in Birmingham, maybe
You'll know the reason why
That I'm gonna be blue
Till I'm on that choo-choo
Headin' south again,
There goes that train,
That's leavin' me blue for Dixie.
