Virgil caine is the name and i served on the danville train
'til stoneman's cavalry came and tore up the tracks again
In the winter of sixty-five
We were hungry just barely alive
By may tenth richmond had fell
It was a time i remember oh so well

The night they drove old dixie down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove old dixie down
And the people were singing, they went
La la la la la la, la la la la la la la la, la

Like my father before me i will work the land (note 1)
And like my brother above me who took a rebel stand
He was just eighteen, proud and brave
When a yankee laid him in his grave
I swear by the mud below my feet
You can't raise a cain back up when he's in defeat

The night they drove old dixie down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove old dixie down
And the people were singing, they went
La la la la la la, la la la la la la la la, la

Back with my wife in tennessee when one day she called to me (note 2)
Virgil, quick come see, there goes robert e lee
Now i don't mind choppin' wood
And i don't care if the money's no good
You take what you need and you keep the rest
But they should never have taken the very best

The night they drove old dixie down
And the bells were ringing
The night they drove old dixie down
And the people were singing, they went
La la la la la la, la la la la la la la la, la
