Dixie Train    (1985)

I been working in Chicago but I just can't take no more
So tomorrow when that whistle blows I'm gonna be on board
The Dixie train, the Dixie train
Cause there's a girl in Alabama that I left behind
And I just got to see her, Lord, before I lose my mind
Dixie train, move on Dixie train
Keep pouring on the coal, let them big wheels roll
Dixie train

Well, she told me if I left her, it's something I'd regret
And I hate to admit it now, but she ain't been wrong yet
Dixie train, oh move on Dixie train
Cause eighteen months of heartache and a thousand miles of track
Is all that lies between me and the chance to win my baby back
Dixie train, move on Dixie train
Yeah, let the hammer down, let's head for Alabam'
Dixie train

Oh, keep them big wheels rollin'
Don't stop until you get to Tuscaloosa
Cause I've got a bad case of
Missing my sweet baby blues

Yeah, keep them big wheels rollin'
Don't stop until you get to Tuscaloosa
Cause I've got a bad case of
Missing my sweet baby blues

I've learned a lesson, I've learned it, yes indeed
This city life just ain't no life for a country boy like me
Dixie train, move on Dixie train
Yeah, let the hammer down, let's head for Alabam'
Dixie train
