The King Of Dixie

The King Of Dixie

Marty Stuart

We're talking Tupelo was about a fast train
Headed toward the world like a mad hurricane
When he finally hit the ground, he tore us all apart
He was born to be a light in the dark

Now miles from Mississippi down some distant shore
He's blazed a trail of glory and a whole lot more
Like some shooting star we've never seen before
I'm talking 'bout the one that opened up the door

The king of Dixie, he's still around
The king of Dixie, in every town
The king of Dixie no he ain't gone
The king of Dixie's still on the throne
The king of Dixie tried and true
Still rockin' away for me and you
The king of Dixie is you know who
I said long live the king of Dixie

There was a man from Montgomery, lonesome to the bone
He only stayed a while, this world was not his home
It seemed like on behalf of broken hearts he's sing
And with every word he was calling my name

Now he's from Alabama where he first saw the light
There ain't a heart in heaven gonna cheat on him tonight
I can see him now, decked out in white
Sending down the word that everything's all right

The king of Dixie, he's still around
The king of Dixie, in every town
The king of Dixie, no he ain't gone
The king of Dixie's still on the throne
The king of Dixie, tried and true
Still rockin' away for me and you
The king of Dixie is you know who
I said long live the king of Dixie

The king of Dixie, he's still around
The king of Dixie, in every town
The king of Dixie, no he ain't gone
The king of Dixie's still on the throne
The king of Dixie, tried and true
Still rockin' away for me and you
The king of Dixie is you know who
I said long live the king of Dixie
