Dixie Flyer - Randy Newman

I was born right here, November '43

 

My dad was a captain in the army

 

Fighting the Germans in Sicily.

 

My poor little momma

 

Didn't know a soul in L.A.

 

So we went down to the Union Station and made our getaway.

 

Got on the Dixie Flyer bound for New Orleans

 

Across the state of Texas to the land of dreams.

 

On the Dixie Flyer bound for New Orleans

 

Back to her friends and her family in the land of dreams.

 

Her own mother came to meet us at the station,

 

Her dress as black as a crow in a coal mine

 

She cried when her little girl got off the train.

 

Her brothers and her sisters come down from Jackson, Mississippi

 

In a great green Hudson driven by a Gentile they knew.

 

Drinkin' rye whiskey from a flask in the back seat

 

Tryin' to do like the Gentiles do

 

Christ, they wanted to be Gentiles, too.

 

Who wouldn't down there, wouldn't you?

 

An American Christian, God damn!

 

On the Dixie Flyer bound for New Orleans

 

Back to her friends and her family in the land of dreams

 

On the Dixie Flyer bound for New Orleans

 

Across the state of Texas to the land of dreams

 

Across the state of Texas to the land of dreams.
