[Verse 1]

Em                           G
I was born in Dixie land, un-reconstructed till the end
   D                            A                             Em
In Carolina, I was raised by my granddaddy in my daddy's ways 
Em                                            G  
They both thought me right from wrong, how to fight and how to get along
       D                              A                       Em
But my own life now is almost gone in southern ground I belong 
Em                               G     
My final hour is drawin' near so friend come sit by me right here
      D                                      A                        Em
Let's laugh and talk about our lives and the good ol days before I die 
Em                                           G              
Please give your word this vow you keep when I return to earth to sleep
       D                                        A                         Em
Let me dream forever under southern land with a Dixie flag tied in my hand 


[Chorus]

G             D                Em                        C      
When, when my time has come, be-fore they lay me down to rest
G                      D                Em                            C
Friends, in my time of darkness, please grant me just this one last re-quest
G     D                     C             G     D 
Dixie land is where I wanna make my final stand 
        G                D                   Em      C
I don't care if I'm in a box or not when they lay me down
    G     B7             Em
Just bury me in southern ground

[Instrumental]
 Em-G-Em-Em
                             
[Verse 2]

Em                                  G
One last look at the country side before I close my weary eyes
D                                    A                            Em
Southern air for my last breath here comes my sweet angel of death 
     Em                             G
Sing Dixie while they lower me so I hear it for eternity
D                            A                      Em
I can feel the reapers touch ashes to ashes dust to dust

[Chorus]

G             D                Em                        C      
When, when my time has come, be-fore they lay me down to rest
G                      D                Em                            C
Friends, in my time of darkness, please grant me just this one last re-quest
G     D                     C             G     D 
Dixie land is where I wanna make my final stand 
        G                D                   Em      C
I don't care if I'm in a box or not when they lay me down
    G     B7             Em
Just bury me in southern ground

[Instrumental]
 Em-G-Em-Em


G     Em                    C             G     D
Dixie land is where I wanna make my final stand 
        G                D                    Em     C
I don't care if I'm in a box or not when they lay me down
     G    B7             Em
Just bury me in southern ground
