Dixie Roads

Verse 1:
Dixie roads snake and turn like the backroads of my heart
Those many loves, those many tears
All those dead ends which shoulda been fresh starts
Promises I made, then I disappeared
Gotta recognizes my roots
Not chase that golden goose
Stay from those cahoots, that goad me
Down the twisted Dixie roads

Chorus:
How many Dixie roads will I take till I find my home
How many Dixie lips have I kiss, but I’m still alone
I’ve tried to reconcile my heart to make a loving plea
To finally find a Dixie miss to take a bended knee... Dixie roads

Verse 2:
Dixie roads wink their eyes like that girl in Tennessee
She took my heart, took it apart
She crashed my truck, we never could agree
With a patch of luck I made a new start
But wound up with a Belle, who
Stole my heart, stole my cell
Ruined my morale, as do the
Holes in twisted Dixie roads

Chorus:
How many Dixie roads will I take till I find my home
How many Dixie lips have I kiss, but I’m still alone
I’ve tried to reconcile my heart to make a loving plea
To finally find a Dixie miss to take a bended knee... Dixie roads

Bridge:
Oh, that Southern miss I miss in Jackson, Mississippi
And that sweet peach, a treat in Memphis, Tennessee
Lost my heart to a girl outside Tallahassee
That Georgia town, loved two gals and I had to flee

Pre-chorus:
How many years will it take till I no longer roam
Oh, my Lord please mend my heart, have mercy on me

Chorus:
How many Dixie roads will I take till I find my home
How many Dixie lips have I kiss, but I’m still alone
I’ve tried to reconcile my heart to make a loving plea
To finally find a Dixie miss to take a bended knee... Dixie roads

Post chorus:
To finally find a Dixie miss to take a bended knee... Dixie roads
