lyrics

I'm headed back to Dixie, it's the place I long to be
Where the Swanee flows I'll be on my toes it's home sweet home to me
Where they meet you and they greet you with the sweetest "How Y'all"
Shut my mouth I'm headed south on the Dixie Cannonball

Chorus

On the Dixie Cannonball, the Dixie Cannonball
I love to hear that whistle, it'll thrill you one and all
And I know I'll not be lonesome when I see them tree tops tall
Shut my mouth I'm headed south on the Dixie Cannonball

When I cross them Smokey Mountains I'll be counting every mile
When the whistle blows I'll be on my toes and I'll shuffle down the aisle
Got a sweetheart waiting for me she's long and she's tall
I'm coming through on a big choo-choo called the Dixie cannonball

Chorus
