Alan Jackson – Dixie Highway lyrics

I was born on the dixi highway, red play and georgy pines

I was raised on the dixi highway, no sweeter place you’ll ever find.

With frame house and grandma driveway

With the trees and old front porch

Just outside the city limits, on the highway 34.

I was born on the dixi highway, red play and georgy pines

I was raised on the dixi highway, no sweeter place you’ll ever find.

And having tobacco rolling on the roadside

Rolled it up and we smoked it down.

Don’t feel much, but it makes you feel big

When you’re ten years old in a tiny town.

I was born on the dixi highway, red play and georgy pines

I was raised on the dixi highway, no sweeter place you’ll ever find.

Have a chicken meal right in the backyard

Close line running east to west

Water bane to make a garden, six days and a sun to rest.

I was born on the dixi highway, red play and georgy pines

I was raised on the dixi highway, no sweeter place you’ll ever find.

Summertime, hot and hazy, bare feet and a water hose

Melon and lime on a country table

Lighting the buds when the sun goes down.

I was born on the dixi highway, red play and georgy pines

I was raised on the dixi highway, no sweeter place you’ll ever find.

And the holy ghost on a sunday morning,

Gospel songs and a bible read

Sunday lunch at momma’s table, praying for lord and break the bread.

I was born on the dixi highway, red play and georgy pines

I was raised on the dixi highway, no sweeter place you’ll ever find.

I screamed in porch right at the backdoor,

Washing machine and an old, old, stove

Momma’s singing in the kitchen, rolling homemade biscuit dough.

I was born on the dixi highway, red play and georgy pines

I was raised on the dixi highway, no sweeter place you’ll ever find.

When I’m old and heaven’s calling

And they come to care me away

Just lay me down, down in soft land

Here where me and jordan play.

I was born on the dixi highway, red play and georgy pines

I was raised on the dixi highway, no sweeter place you’ll ever find
