The Band - The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

submitted by MUSIIUM on 06/07/16 1

From the 1978 film 'The Last Waltz' Virgil Caine is the 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. By May tenth, Richmond had fell, it's a time I remember, oh so well, The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, when all the bells were ringing, The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, and all the people were singin'. They went, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Back with my wife in Tennessee, When one day she called to me, Said "Virgil, quick, come and see, there goes the 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, when all the bells were ringing, The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, and all the people were singin'. They went, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Like my father before me, I will work the land, And like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand. He was just eighteen, proud and brave, But a Yankee laid him in his grave, And 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, when all the bells were ringing, The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, and all the people were singin'. They went, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na, Na,
