	The night they drove Old Dixie down and the bells were ringing 

	    C/G       Fmaj7         C/G          Fmaj7
	The night they drove Old Dixie down and all the people were singing 

	           C/G          Am              Gsus4               F

	Am                     C             F          F/E        Dm
 	 Back with my wife in Tennessee when one day she called to me 

	Am                  C    F              F/E       Dm
 	 "Virgil quick come see, there goes the Robert E. Lee" 

	Am/E               F                    C                 Dm
 	 Now, I don't mind choppin' wood and I don't care if the money's no good 

	Am/E                            F
	 Ya' take what ya' need and ya' leave the rest 

                         C          Dm             D

  Verse 3; repeat verse 2 chord progression 

	Like my father before me, I will work the land 

	Like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand 

	He was just eighteen, proud and brave, but a Yankee laid him in his grave 

	I swear by the mud below my feet 

	You can't raise a Caine back up when he's in defeat 

  

  (Repeat chorus) 

  

  Lead-in to repeat chorus
	
	[C, E, G, C] Bm, Bb, Am, Ab(b5), C/G, D/F# 

  

  (Repeat chorus)
