Mike's Big Book of Songs

New South - Dixie

i don't go in that bar since they eighty sixed me
for throwin' a drink that the waitress fixed me
at a customer who asked for "dixie"
i don't suffer fools and i don't play "Dixie"

i'll play you a song as long as you tip me
if it's "rocky top" you want, better make that a fifty
if you don't understand me, read my lips see
i don't suffer fools and i don't play Dixie

you show your true colors, well I'll show mine
but I'll warn you now boo
my colors they're more red than white and blue
if you don't like it, go ahead and hit me
but i don't suffer fools and i don't play "Dixie"

see that statue, that's general e. lee
they should knock him on his ass if you ask me
i ain't no gray coat as you can see
i don't suffer fools and i don't play Dixie

you show your true colors, I'll show you mine
but I'll warn you now boo
my colors they're more red than white and blue
you had your fun, you got your kicks
but i don't suffer fools and i don't play "Dixie"

now there's a sign high on a cypress tree
been up there since 1993
and in bold letters it says this is duke country
but it's mine now
and this ain't Dixie

you show your true colors, well I'll show mine
but I'll warn you now boo
my colors they're more red than white and blue
if you don't like it, go ahead and hit me
but i don't suffer fools and i don't play "dixie"
