Jerry Reed Are You From Dixie lyrics
Well hello there neighbor how do you do
There's something I'd like to say to you
Are you from my homeland my sunny homeland
Now tell me friend could it be
Yeah well alright

Well this old boy's from Dixie too
Ha ha listen are you from Dixie I said from Dixie
Where all them fields of cotton Lord they beckon to me
Well I say how be ya my it's good to see ya neighbor
And how's all them friends back home I long to see
Well if you're from Alabama Tennessee or Caroline
Anyplace below that Mason Dixon line
Then you're from Dixie hurray for Dixie
Cause this old boy's from Dixie too
Well if you're from Louisiana Mississippi Alabama West Virginia Tennessee or Caroline
Just any little place below that Mason Dixon line
Then you're from Dixie hurray hurray for Dixie
Cause this old boy he's from Dixie too
Yes if you're from Louisiana Mississippi Alabama...
