Words And Music By Johnny Rodgers

Well, I went down to New Orleans
'Cause I heard her callin' out for me.
She said, "Son, you've got to try you
Some bayou hospitality."
But without any warning,
How ever could I know?
She'd love me 'til the morning
And she'd never let me go.
So if you wanna find me,
That's where I'll be, I guarantee.

'Cause you can't contain the thunder
Of Dixie basses way down low
When they're slowly walkin' under
Those rusty trumpets as they blow.
And when that clarinet is set to
Free that Melody,
The notes I hear it belt
Begin to melt all over me.
So if you wanna find me,
Deep down in Dixie's where I'll be.

Last night, I hit the Quarter
To do it up in the ol' style.
And ain't that just like a lady
To tease me with that Creole smile?
She danced around until I
Nearly drowned in ecstasy,
Much deeper down in Dixie than I
Ever thought I'd be,
And I'd like to tell you finally,
Miss Dixie made a man of me.

And I'd like to thank her kindly,
Miss Dixie made a man of me.
