Dixie Flyer (迪克西·弗萊爾) - Randy Newman

I was born right here

 

November '43

 

Dad was a captain in the army

 

Fighting the Germans in Sicily

 

My poor little mama

 

Didn't know a soul in L A

 

Went down to the Union Station

 

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 down

To station meet us

 

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 came down from Jackson Mississippi

 

In a great green Hudson driven by a Gentile they knew

 

Drinkin' rye whiskey from a flask in the backseat

 

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

 

Goddamn

 

On the Dixie Flyer

 

Bound for New Orleans

 

Across the state of Texas

 

In the land of dreams

 

On the Dixie Flyer

 

Bound for New Orleans

 

Back to her friends and her family

 

In the land of dreams

 

Back to her friends and her family

 

In the land of dreams
