Song: The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

Artist: The Band

Favorite Line:

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

Lyrics:


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 the tenth, Richmond had fell
 It's a time I remember, oh so well
 

The night they drove old Dixie down
 
And the bells were ringing
 
The night they drove old Dixie down
 
And the people were singing
 
They went, "La, la, la"
 

Back with my wife in Tennessee, when one day she called to me
 
"Virgil, quick, come see, there go 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
 
And the bells were ringing
 
The night they drove old Dixie down
 
And all the people were singing
 
They went, "La, la, la"
 

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
 
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 the bells were ringing
 
The night they drove old Dixie down
 
And all the people were singing
 
They went, "Na, na, na"
 

The night they drove old Dixie down
 
And all the bells were ringing
 
The night they drove old Dixie down
 
And the people were singing
 
They went, "Na, na, na"
