8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Play verse, chorus, chorus, then repeat.
Down below that old Dixon Line There's a place that really is fine,
Don't you know jus' what I'm talkin' about! Y'wanna find out? Then take a trip with me,
Down below that old Dixon Line, Where the sun is happy to shine,
Where a friendly face is common to see, That's where I'm longin' to be.
Where the folks are happy and gay, And the easy way is the right way.
Where the bees make honey all day, Don't you know you're right next to Heaven down South.
Where the moon shines mellow and bright, And the breezes play tag with the night.
There's where those sun-down gals hold you tight; Lawdy how I love the South.
