George Jones — Dixieland For Me lyrics

I'm dreaming tonight of the mountains
That's where I long to roam
The roosters crow at the break of day
In my Dixie home, sweet home

Old people here they just don't care
I never saw the beat
That road ahead is mighty long
But it's Dixiland for me.

--- Instrumental ---

I'm going back to my old home
In the mountains far away
Where the wild red roses smell so sweet
And the rippling waters play.
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/george-jones-dixieland-for-me-lyrics.html ]
Old people here they just don't care
I never saw the beat
That road ahead is mighty long
But it's Dixiland for me.

--- Instrumental ---

This city life is not for me
I'm going where the neighbors speak
That road ahead is mighty long
But it's Dixiland for me.

Old people here they just don't care
I never saw the beat
That road ahead is mighty long
But it's Dixiland for me.

That road ahead is mighty long
But it's Dixiland for me...
