Whistle Dixie Lyrics

by Darryl Worley

I have walked the greener pastures
And I've made a lot of hay
I've gone fast and even faster
I've been lost and found my way

Got a whole lot out of livin'
My simple southern life
Tried to do my share of givin'
And I know my soul's all right

So, everybody whistle Dixie
When they lay me in the ground
When that cold wind comes to get me
I don't want nobody standin' 'round

Sheddin' tears and feelin' sorry
'Cause I'm gone to see my God
Everybody whistle Dixie
Let 'em lay me 'neath the sod

There's a peace of mind in knowin'
That some things are meant to be
Like the way my age is showin'
And that you were made for me

Like the sweet Savannah sunshine
And the Louisiana rain
Things that make this life worth living
And keep a man from goin' insane

So, everybody whistle Dixie
When they lay me in the ground
When that cold wind comes to get me
I don't want nobody standin' 'round

Sheddin' tears and feelin' sorry
'Cause I'm gonna go to see my God
Everybody whistle Dixie
Let 'em lay me 'neath the sod

Lord, I love the land of cotton
Yeah, but someday I'll say goodbye
'Cause there's a better home awaitin'
(There's a better home awaitin')
Yeah, there's a mansion in the sky

Everybody whistle Dixie
(Everybody)
Oh when they lay me in the ground
(Everybody, when they lay me in the ground)
When that cold wind comes to get me
Don't want nobody standin' 'round

Sheddin' tears and feelin' sorry
(Don't want nobody feelin' sorry)
'Cause I'm gonna go to see my God
(I'm goin', I'm goin')
Everybody whistle Dixie
(Oh everybody whistle Dixie)
Let 'em lay me 'neath the sod


(Everybody whistle Dixie)
Just let 'em lay me 'neath the sod
(Everybody whistle Dixie, everybody)
