The Band - The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down


The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

Virgil Caine is the name
And I served on the Danville train
'Til Stoneman's cavalry came
And tore up the tracks again
In the winter of '65
We were hungry, just barely alive
By May the 10th Richmond had fell
It's a time I remember, oh so well
The night they drove old Dixie down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And the people were singing
They went, "Sha, na, na, na, na, na ..."
Back with my wife in Tennessee
When one day she called to me
Said "Virgil, quick, come see,
There goes Robert E. Lee!"
I don't mind chopping wood
And I don't care if my money's no good
You take what you need
And you leave the rest
But they should never
Have taken the very best
Like my father before me
I will work the land
And like my brother above me
Who took a rebel stand
He was just 18, proud and brave
But a Yankee laid him in his grave
And I swear by the mud below my feet
You can't raise a Caine back up
When he's in defeat
