    Dixie Boy

    I was raised in the shadows by that old cotton mill
    Back when believin' was the style
    Small town heaven and a big-eyed boy
    Made sweet music for a while.

    My daddy worked hard down at the factory
    Nights he went to G.I. school
    He didn't know nothin' 'bout the silver spoon
    But he lived by the golden rule.

    Summer nights he was gone, me and mama stayed home
    Out on the front porch swing
    Wishin' on the stars in the southern sky
    And sometimes we used to sing.

    We were leaning, leaning on
    The everlasting arms of love
    Livin' all those simple joys
    This Dixie boy is made of.

    Got my real education from the T.V. station
    And good ole boys down at the park
    The say Hey, Willie and those rock-a-billies
    Made their way into my heart.

    I remember the old folks sittin' 'round talkin'
    On laidback Sunday afternoons
    They said them young folks sure got a hard road
    Oh, they're growin' up too soon.

    Now I know they were right, and as I sit here tonight
    Out on the front porch swing
    The stars are shinin' in my young boy's eyes
    Just like they did for me.

    We are leaning, leaning on
    The everlasting arms of love
    Livin' all those simple joys
    This Dixie boy is made of.

    We are leaning, leaning on
    The everlasting arms of love
    Livin' all those simple joys
    This Dixie boy is made of...
