Virgil Caine is the name

And I served on the Danville train

'Til Stoneman's cavalry came

And they tore up the tracks again

In the winter of '65

We were hungry, just barely alive

By May the tenth, Richmond had fell

It's a time I remember, oh so well

The night they drove Old Dixie down

And all her bells were ringing

The night they drove Old Dixie down

And all the people were singin', they went, na na na

Back with my wife in Tennessee

When one day she called to me

Said, "Virgil, quick, come see

There goes Robert. E. Lee"

Now, I don't mind choppin' wood

And I don't care if my money's no good

You take what you need and you leave the rest

But they should never have taken the very best

The night they drove Old Dixie down

And all her bells were ringing

The night they drove Old Dixie down

And all the people were singin', they went, na na na

Like my father before me

I will work the land

And like my brother up above me

Who took a rebels stand

He was just eighteen, proud and brave

But a Yankee laid him in his grave

And I swear by the mud below my feet

You can't raise a Caine back up when he's in defeat

The night they drove Old Dixie down

When all her bells were ringing

The night they drove Old Dixie down

And all the people were singin', they went, na na na

The night they drove Old Dixie down

When all her bells were ringing

The night they drove Old Dixie down

And you could hear 'em all singin', they went, na na na
