Subject: an Alabama song

Here are the chords to Alabama's "Dixieland Delight", written by Ronnie Rogers

Tablature additions gladly welcomed.

G D Em C G D Cm G

verse 1:
[G] Rollin' down-a backwoods
    Tennessee by-[D]-way
[Em]One arm on the [C] wheel
    Holdin' my [G] lover
    With the [D] other
[Em]A sweet, soft Southern [C] thrill
    Worked hard all [Em] week
    Got a little [D] jingle
    On a [Em] Tennessee Saturday [C] night
    Couldn't feel [G] better
    I'm to-[D]-gether with my [Cm] Dixieland Delight[G]

Cho:Spend my [D] dollar
    Park in a [Em] holler 'neath the mountain moon-[C]-light
    Hold her [G] up tight
    Make a little [D] lovin'
    A little turtle-[Em]-dovin' on a mason-Dixon [C] night
    Fits my [Em] life
    Oh, so [C] right
    My [Cm] Dixieland De-[G]-light

A simplified version of the solo after 1st chorus (if anybody knows it note
for note, PLEASE let me know):

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----------0(p.m) 0(p.m)-3-(0)-0---------------------------------------------|
G---------0------------------------2----------------------------------0(pm)---|
D--0-(2)------------------------------------------------0-2-----0-(2)---------|
A-------------------------------------0-2-0---------0-2-----------------------|
E-------------------------------------------3-0-2-3---------------------------|


E------------------------0--3--6--5--3--7--5--3-----------then-either:---15----|
B-0(pm)-3-(0)-0-------3--------------------------------------------------------|or do a G-harmonic
G---------------2--------------------------------------------------------------|
D------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Verse 2: (same chords as the first)

White-tail buck deer
Munchin' on clover
Red-tail hawk
Sittin' on a limb
Chubby old groundhog
Croakin' bullfrog
Free as a feelin' in the wind
Homegrown country girl
Gonna give me a whirl
on a Tennessee Saturday night
Lucky as a seven
Livin' in heaven
with my Dixieland Delight

(repeat cho)

a few strange chord progressions follow the 2nd chorus; something like

C, D, Em  a couple of times, and I believe the key changes to A (so, of
course, either capo the 2nd fret now, or play all the chords a whole step
higher than they are written here)

a fiddle solo ensues, and the tempo increases and they fade out, singing
verse one again.

Chords are good. The solo is not quit there.

The "strange chords" are F, G, A, before the key change / fiddle solo.
