Back with my wife in Tennesse, when one day she called me
Virgil! Quick! Come an' see  there goes Robert E. Lee

Now i don't mind i'm chopping wood, and the money's no good

you take what you need and you leave the rest, but they've taken the very best

D            Hm            G              D                          Hm
The night they drove old dixie down, and the bells were ringin'
The night they drove old Dixie down, and the people were singin' → D-Hm-E-G

He was just eighteen, proud and brave, but a yankee laid him in his grave
I swear by the mud down below my feet, you can't raise the cane back up when its in the feed

D            Hm            G              D                          Hm
The night they drove old dixie down, and the bells were ringin'
The night they drove old Dixie down, and the people were singin' → D-Hm-E-G
