Dixie Road

 

   A

1.   I would pick and we would sing to the rhythm of that front porch swing,

               D                                                         A

     the moonlight holds the spotlight that we shared.

                         

    I found new notes on that old guitar, she believed I could be a star,

            B7                                             E

    she told me that she wanted to be fair.

 

                       A                                 

2. She said,     love will only hold you down, boy you're glory bound,

    D                                                                A

    we can't share a world with different dreams.

                          

    So I chased mine and she found hers too,

 

    but someone else made hers come true,

                                    E                   A

    now I'm a star, but every time I sing.

 

 - - - - - - - - - -        A

My heart goes drifting down a dusty dixie road,

                     D                        A

taking my mind, back in time.

          

L.A. lights burn like hell once you know,

                                          E                     A

you left heaven waitin' down the dixie road.

 

                A

2.Every night I'm in a different place and I'm searching every stranger's face,

      D                                                      A

    trying to find the girl that's just not there.

               

   She's back there in Montegomery, and I'm clear across the country,

                                       E                              A

    but whenever I'm alone I go back there.  

 

+ CHORUS  + CHORUS ....(capo 1st)
