lyrics

Well hello there stranger, how do you do?
There's something I'd like to say to you.
Don't be surprised if I recognize.
I'm no detective, but I just surmised.
You're from the place that I'm longing to be.
You're smiling face seems to say to me,
You're from my own land,
My sunny homeland.
Tell me, can it be?

Chorus:
That you're from Dixie.
I said from Dixie.
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me.
It's good to see you.
Tell me, how be you?"
And the friends I'm longing to see.
If you're from Alabam' or Tennessee or Caroline.
Any place below that Mason-Dixon Line.
Then you're from Dixie,
I said from Dixie.
And I'm from Dixie too!

Well it was way back in 89,
I crossed that old Mason-Dixon Line.
Gee but I yern--
I long to return,
To that old place that I left behind.
My home's down in old Alabam'.
On a plantation near Birmingham.
There's one thing certain,
I'm always flirting,
With them south-bound trains.

Chorus:
That run to Dixie.
I said to Dixie.
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me.
It's good to see you.
Tell me, how be you?"
And the friends I'm longing to see.
If you're from Alabam' or Tennessee or Caroline.
Any place below that Mason-Dixon Line.
Then you're from Dixie,
I said from Dixie.
And I'm from Dixie too!
Yeah, I'm from Dixie too!

Jeff and Marcy Paulson of the Tin Cup Rattlers love sharing old-time ballads, gospels, and folksongs in the tradition of their home in Southeast Tennessee. Their blend of clawhammer banjo, old-time harmonica, and mountain singing is original, yet demonstrates compelling reverence for tradition. This duo is drawn to time-honored tunes and their love for the music is infectious. ... more
