Lyrics:

Dixie Dirt

How can man who's never had one
say he's goin' home
How can a man with Jesus in his window
never roam?
Been to Texas and the plains out
to the North
Mountains to the West
and up and down the Eastern shore

How can a man who's lost his way
say he's doing fine
How can a man livin' everyday
say he's just doing time
On the road to Reno
I saw a light along the way
goin down to Dixie
to spend my day

I'm going down
to Dixie Dirt
where the past
is in the earth
Where the moon hangs low
cause there ain't nowhere else to go
The people say
you can find your soul

I'm going down to Dixie
Dixie Dirt
I'm going down to Dixie
Dixie Dirt
Will all I know
come and go
Everything you try to hold on to

On the road to Reno
I saw a light along the way
goin down to Dixie
to spend my day
I'm going down to Dixie
Dixie Dirt
I'm going down to Dixie
Dixie Dirt
I'm going down to Dixie
Dixie Dirt
tIt's like a piece of forever
to hold on to
