Paroles officielles de la chanson "Dixie Lullaby"

My father had skin like leather
Hands like steel
From a lifetime spent in cotton fields
You know he'd come home tired and dirty almost every night
And he'd find the strength to smile and at me and hold my mama tight
While that old transistor radio would play the Opry out in the hall
I'd sit and watch those two shadows glide across the wall

And they'd dance to a Dixie lullaby
A picture of love beneath a southern sky
Oh my what a beautiful light
Just like a Dixie lullaby

I left home at 18
In my hand me down Chevrolet
Packed with my mama's cooking
And my old mans stubborn ways
It was college, work and then Love
And then the babies came
The youngest one got his granddaddy's name
In the early morning hours
When my children couldn't sleep
I rock them in my arms to a gentle beat

And sing them a Dixie lullaby
Hush baby don't you start to cry
Oh my what a beautiful life
Just like a Dixie Lullaby

My father was a mount of a man
That was the description that I gave
The morning we laid him in his grave
There was my mama by his side
I said my last goodbye
To a man I thought would never die
As I stood there in that field
Of amazing grace
Oh how the tears ran down my face

And I sang him a Dixie Lullaby
We'll meet again by and by
Oh my what a beautiful life
Just like a Dixie Lullaby
Oh my what a beautiful life
Just like a Dixie Lullaby
