Text písně The Buck Owen's Buckaroos: Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

Night They Drove Old Dixie Down



Virgil Cane is my name and I served on the Denville train
Till Stoneman's calvary came and tore up the tracks again
In the winter of '65 we were hungry just barely alive
I made 10th to Richmond that fell it was the time that I remember oh so well
The night they drove old Dixie down and all the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down and all the people were singing
They went la la la la la
[ guitar ]
Back with my wife in Tennessee well one day she called to me
Virgil quick come see that there goes Robert E Lee
Now I don't mind choppin' woods and I don't care if the money's no good
Yopu take what you need and leave the rest
But they sould never have taken the very best
The night they drove
[ guitar ]
Like my father before me I'm a working man
And like my brother that'll love me he took the rebel stand
But he was just eighteen proud and brave and a yankee laid him in his grave
The night they drove
