[Intro]

G D Em C G D Cm G


[Verse]

G                                 D
Rollin' down-a backwoods Tennessee byway
Em            C                 G
One arm on the wheel, holdin' my lover
        D      Em                    C
With the other, a sweet, soft Southern thrill
                Em                D
Worked hard all week, got a little jingle
     Em                C
On a Tennessee Saturday night
              G             D
Couldn't feel better, I'm together 
        Cm        G
With my Dixieland Delight


[Chorus]

         D                 Em                                   C
Spend my dollar, park in a holler 'neath the mountain moonlight
         G                       D
Hold her up tight, make a little lovin'
              Em                             C
A little turtledovin' on a mason-Dixon night
        Em           C                Cm                 G
Fits my life, oh, so right, my Dixieland Delight


[Verse]

G                                 D
White-tail buck deer, munchin' on clover
Em                          C
Red-tail hawk, sittin' on a limb
           G                 D
Chubby old groundhog, croakin' bullfrog
Em                      C
Free as a feelin' in the wind
                 Em                   D
Homegrown country girl, gonna give me a whirl
     Em                C
On a Tennessee Saturday night
           G                D
Lucky as a seven; livin' in heaven
        Cm        G
With my Dixieland Delight


[Chorus]

         E                 F#m                                  E
Spend my dollar, park in a holler 'neath the mountain moonlight
         A                       E
Hold her up tight, make a little lovin'
              F#m                             D
A little turtledovin' on a mason-Dixon night
        F#m           D                Dm                 A
Fits my life, oh, so right, my Dixieland Delight

If you play this travis picking...you can hear that its a C/G chord not a C. And I have to disagree about the Cm. Its a good chord shape to learn and is used in lots of other songs.

The C to Cm movement is correct and is an example of a deceptive cadence in action. The listener doesn't expect it and then it resolves back to the tonic. Quite effective...
