THE NIGHT THEY DROVE OLD DIXIE DOWN

Joan Baez

\"This is the last song
Thank you, thank you, thank you
You've been a true delight\"

Virgil Caine is my name and I drove on the Danville train
'Til Stoneman's cavalry came and tore up the tracks again
In the winter of '65, we were hungry, just barely alive
I took the train to Richmond that fell
It was a time I remember, oh, so well

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the bells were ringin'
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singin'
They went, \"Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na\"

Back with my wife in Tennessee
And one day she said to me
\"Virgil, quick! Come see
There goes Robert E. Lee\"
Now I don't mind, I'm chopping wood
And I don't care if the money's no good
Just take what you need and leave the rest
But they should never have taken the very best

(Follow the bouncing arm)

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the bells were ringin'
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singin'
They went, \"Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na\"

Like my father before me, I'm a working man
And like my brother before me, I took a rebel stand
Well, he was just eighteen, proud and brave
But a yankee laid him in his grave
I swear by the blood below my feet
You can't raise a Caine back up when he's in defeat

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the bells were ringin'
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singin'
They went, \"Na, na, na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na\"

\"Thank you, thank you, thank you
And good night

Thank you\"
