Rollin’ down a backwoods, Tennessee by-way

One arm on the wheel

Holding my lover with the other

A sweet, soft, southern thrill

Worked hard all week; got a little jingle

On a Tennessee Saturday night

Couldn’t feel better, I’m together

With my dixieland delight

 

Spend my dollar, parked in a holler

‘Neath the mountain moonlight

Hold her up tight

Make a little lovin’

A little turtle dovin’

On a Mason-Dixon night

Fits my life, oh so right

My Dixieland Delight

 

 

White-tail buck deer, munching on clover

Red-tail hawk sitting on a limb

A chubby old groundhog, croaking bullfrog

Free as the feeling in the wind

Home grown country girl, gonna give me a whirl

On a Tennessee Saturday night

Lucky as a seven, livin’ in heaven

With my dixieland delight

 

Spend my dollar, parked in a holler

‘Neath the mountain moonlight

Hold her up tight

Make a little lovin’

A little turtle dovin’

On a Mason-Dixon night

Fits my life, oh so right

My dixieland delight

 

 

Spend my dollar, parked in a holler

‘Neath the mountain moonlight

Hold her up tight

Make a little lovin’

A little turtle dovin’

On a Mason-Dixon night

Fits my life, oh so right

My dixieland delight

 

 

Rolling down a backwoods Tennessee by-way

One arm on the wheel

Holding my lover with the other

She’s a sweet soft southern thrill

Worked hard all week; got a little jingle

On a Tennessee Saturday night

Couldn’t feel better, I’m together

With my dixieland delight
