Get Me Back To Dixie    (1988)

You can put me in the ocean stranded in a boat
Put me on an island, no bottle or a note
Put me on a Greyhound bus with a dog behind the wheel
Tie me up, you'll still get stuck with a hearing how I feel

Drop me in Alaska in thirty feet of snow
Drop me at the cold north pole where the Eskimos won't go
Drop me in the desert with the heat of the burning sand
Ring my bell, but I'll still tell you how I really stand

Get me back to Dixie, I love my Tennessee
In the Smokey Mountains that's where I want to be
From the muddy Mississippi to the land of the Cherokee
Get me back to Dixie I love my Tennessee...
Love my Tennessee

(Fire on the mountain, run boys run!)

You can run me up a mountain where only eagles fly
Throw me down a cold dark well where I can't see the sky
Tie me to the railroad tracks and read me my last rites
Long as that ole train don't stop until Tennessee's in sight

Get me back to Dixie I love my Tennessee
In the Smokey Mountains that's where I want to be
From the muddy Mississippi to the land of the Cherokee
Get me back to Dixie I love my Tennessee...
Love my Tennessee

Get me back to Dixie I love my Tennessee...
Love my Tennessee
