The Night They Drove Old Dixie Dow - JOAN BAEZ

 

Virgil Caine is my 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

I took the train to Richmond had fell

It's a time I remember oh so well

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the people were singin'

They went

La la la la la la la la

 

Back with my wife in Tennessee

And one day she said to me

Virgil quick come see there goes Robert E Lee

Now I don't mind choppin' wood

And I don't care if the money's no good

Ya take what ya need and ya leave the rest

But they should never have taken the very best

 

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the people were singin'

They went

La la la la la la la la

 

Like my father before me

I'm a working man

Like my brother above me

 

I 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

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down

And all the people were singin'

They went

La la la la la la la la
