The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down (Live Edit /1975) - Joan Baez (瓊·貝茲)

Virgil Caine is my name and I drove on the Danville train

 

Till So much 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 that fell

It was a time I remember oh so well

The night they drove old Dixie down

 

And all the bells were ringin'

The night they drove old Dixie down

 

And all the people were singin'

They went "Na na na"

 

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 I'm chopping wood

 

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

Just take what you need and leave the rest

But they should never have taken the very best

 

The night they drove old Dixie down

 

And all the bells were ringin'

The night they drove old Dixie down

 

And all the people were singin'

They went "Na na na"

 

Like my father before me I'm a working man

 

And like my brother before me I took a rebel stand

But he was just 18 proud and brave

But a yankee laid him in his grave

I swear by the blood 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 ringin'

The night they drove old Dixie down

 

And all the people were singin'

They went "Na na na"
