I Sang Dixie - Dwight Yoakam

    I sang Dixie as he died
    People just walked on by as I cried
    The bottle had robbed him of all his rebel pride
    So I sang Dixie as he died

    He said way down yonder in the land of cotton
    Old times there ain't near as rotten as they are
    On this damned old L.A. street
    Then he drew a dying breath
    And laid his head against my chest
    Please Lord take his soul back home to Dixie

    (Repeat Chorus)

    He said listen to me son while you still can
    Run back home to that Southern land
    Don't you see what life here has done to me?
    Then he closed those old blue eyes
    And fell limp against my side
    No more pain, now he's safe back home in Dixie

    (Repeat Chorus)

    I sang Dixie as he died
