You Ain't Just Whistlin' Dixie Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Pine trees grow so tall in the bright sunshine
A young boy steals his daddy's fishin' line
The alligator lays on the banks of a riverbed
And if you didn't know any better you'd swear he's dead
Verse 2
Now these are a few things I'm in love with
A small part of the reason I'd go back
To Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, gorgeous Georgia
Now if you think I'm happy down there you're on the right track
Verse 3
And you ain't just whistlin' Dixie
You ain't just slappin' your knee
I'm a grandson of the Southland
An heir to the Confederacy
Verse 4
You ain't just whistlin' Dixie
'Cause the cattle call's callin' me home
So put me down there where I wanna be
Plant my feet with Robert E. Lee
Bury my bones under a cypress tree
And never let me roam
Verse 5
The cotton balls gleam and the cow gives cream for the baby's sake
And pa comes in full of gin and he's mean as a rattlesnake
And if the well runs dry and we cry and cuss the garden hose
Then mama draws a bucket full of creek water just to wash our clothes
Verse 6
Now these are a few things I'm in love with
A small part of the reason I go back
To Carolina, Mississippi, Florida, gorgeous Georgia
Now if you think I'm happy down there you're on the right track
Verse 7
And you ain't just whistlin' Dixie
You ain't just slappin' your knee
I'm a grandson of the Southland boys
An heir to the Confederacy
Verse 8
You ain't just whistlin' Dixie
'Cause the cattle call's callin' me home
So put me down there where I wanna be
Plant my feet with Robert E. Lee
Bury my bones under a cypress tree
And never let me roam
