Alabama – Dixieland Delight Lyrics

 

Rollin’ down a backwoods, Tennessee by-way,

One arm on the wheel.

Holdin’ my lover with the other,

A sweet, soft, southern thrill.

Worked hard all week; got a little jingle,

On a Tennessee Saturday night.

Couldn’t feel better, I’m together,

With my Dixieland Delight.

 

Spend my dollar, parked in a holler,

‘Neath the mountain moonlight.

Hold her up tight,

Make a little lovin’,

A little turtle dovin’.

On a Mason-Dixon night.

Fits my life, oh so right,

My Dixieland Delight.

 

White-tail buck deer, munchin’ on clover,

Red-tail hawk sittin’ on a limb.

A chubby old groundhog, croakin’ bullfrog,

Free as the feelin’ in the wind.

Home grown country girl, gonna give me a whirl,

On a Tennessee Saturday night.

Lucky as a seven, livin’ in heaven,

With my Dixieland Delight.

 

Spend my dollar, parked in a holler,

‘Neath the mountain moonlight.

Hold her up tight, make a little lovin’,

A little turtle dovin’.

On a Mason-Dixon night.

Fits my life, oh so right,

My Dixieland Delight.

 

Spend my dollar, parked in a holler,

‘Neath the mountain moonlight.

Hold her up tight, make a little lovin’,

A little turtle dovin’.

On a Mason-Dixon night.

Fits my life, oh so right,

My Dixieland Delight.

 

Rollin’ down a backwoods Tennessee by way,

One arm on the wheel.

Holdin’ my lover…
