Dixie Chicken

A
E
I've seen the bright lights of Memphis and the Commodore Hotel
E7
E
E7
A
And underneath a street lamp, I met a southern belle
D
A
E
Oh, she took me to the river, where she cast her spell
E7
E
E7
A
And in that southern moonlight, she sang this song so well
A
If you'll be my Dixie chicken
E
I'll be your Tennessee lamb
E7
E
A
D
A
And we can walk together down in Dixieland
E7
A
D
A
Down in Dixieland
We made all the hotspots, my money flowed like wine Then the low-down southern whiskey, yea, began to fog my mind And I don't remember church bells, or the money I put down On the white picket fence and boardwalk On the house at the end of town
D
A
E
Oh, but boy do I remember the strain of her refrain
E7
E
And the nights we spent together
E7
E
A
And the way she called my name
If you'll be my Dixie chicken I'll be your Tennessee lamb And we can walk together down in Dixieland Down in Dixieland
A
Well, many years since she ran away
E
Yes that guitar player sure could play
E7
E
She always liked to sing along
E7
E
A
She always handy with a song
D
A
E
But then one night at the lobby of the Commodore Hotel
E7
E
E7
E
A
I chanced to meet a bartender who said he knew her well
D
A
E
And as he handed me a drink he began to hum a song
E7
E
E7
E
A
And all the boys there, at the bar, began to sing along
If you'll be my Dixie chicken I'll be your Tennessee lamb And we can walk together down in Dixieland Down in Dixieland

And eloquent profanity
B

It rolls right off my tongue
And I have dined in palaces Drunk wine with kings and queens But Darlin', oh Darlin' You're the best thing I ever seen
A
E
Won't you roll me easy

Oh slow and easy
A

Take my independence

I've been across this country From Denver to the ocean And I never met girls that could sing so sweet Like the angels that live in Houston Singing, roll me easy So slow and easy Play the concertina, be a temptress And Baby I'm defenseless Singin' harmony In unison Sweet harmony Gotta hoist the flag And I'll beat your drum

Don't sing sad songs Juliette 'Cause I heard you've been out to get it I seen you dancin' all night long What they said about you I hope it Don't turn out wrong Red, red roses, lyin' on the ground Heartache and pain They call you by name They follow you around Juliette talk sweet Juliette Juliette The sky is all cast over And the stars refuse to shine And your lonely, your life is lonely Ah in time Over here don't concur He said you were out of control But I don't mind if you were with her one time So called prince of rock and roll Red, red roses, lyin' on the ground Heartache and pain They call you by name They follow you around Juliette I'm so sorry Juliette
