Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Gather round me people, got a song to sing
About that sweet magnolia thyme
The black eyed Susan made some catfish stew
And papa brought some homemade wine
Verse 2
Now, all the southern children like to rock 'n' roll
The TV mamas tell you why
They got it on the boat from Africa
It's that Dixie lullaby
Verse 3
And blind Willie Time, he had a dime shoe shine
Stand down on Beale Street
And Willie would stop and say "Hello"
To all the shoes he'd meet
Verse 4
"Why are you so happy?" said the clean white buck
"You got no reason to be happy Mr. Time"
But Willie just smiled and he dropped his rag
And sang a Dixie lullaby
Verse 5
Now you heard the story of my southern home
With a honeysuckle wine
Anytime you think that you might come yourself
You ought to keep this thought in mind
Verse 6
All you easy riders better watch your step
If you're walkin' down below the line
That Louisiana man is gonna get you, yet
With his Dixie lullaby
Verse 7
He's got a Dixie lullaby
Ohh, it's a Dixie lullaby, bye
Verse 8
