Down Along The Dixie Line chords - Gillian Welch

Gillian Welch Lyrics


            Capo on 2


G
Way down in Dixie, oh do they miss me

C                      G
Down along the Dixie line

G
Banjoes are strummin’, horseflies are hummin’

A7                 C
Ripe melons on the vine

    Em           G          C         A7
The gold and the gray weeds sing look away

    G              D       G
Way down along the Dixie line


I spent my childhood walking the wildwood
Down along the Dixie line
Freight trains are squallin’, eyeballs are ballin’
Four engines at a time I was so happy with Momma and Pappy Down along the Dixie line G C Can't you hear those drivers wail G D Can't you see those bright rails shine G C Gonna catch that fireball man G D G Leave the northland far behind [Solo over verse chords] A river of whiskey flows down in Dixie Down along the Dixie line They pulled up the tracks now, I can't go back now Can't hardly keep from crying Oh do they miss me way down in Dixie Down along the Dixie line G C Can't you hear those drivers wail G D Can't you see those bright rails shine G C Wanna catch that fireball man G D G Leave the northland far behind... C A7 G D G ...Down along the Dixie line
