I'm a-headin' back to Dixie, that's where I long to be
Where the cotton grows and the Swanee flows that's home sweet home to me
Where they meet you and they greet you with a great big "how you all?"
Well shut my mouth, I'm a-headin' south on the Dixie Cannonball

On the Dixie Cannonball, on the Dixie Cannonball
Just listen to the whistle, it'll thrill you one and all
And I know there's someone waitin' with a great big "how you all?"
Well, shut my mouth I'm a-headin' south on the Dixie Cannonball

When I cross them smokey mountain I'll be countin' every mile
When the whistle blows I'll be on my toes and I'll shuffle down the aisle
And I know I'll not be lonesome when I see them treetops tall
I'm coming through on the big choo-choo on the Dixie Cannonball

On the Dixie Cannonball, on the Dixie Cannonball
Just listen to the whistle, it'll thrill you one and all
And I know there's someone waitin' with a great big "how you all?"
Well, shut my mouth I'm a-headin' south on the Dixie Cannonball

Yes, I'm goin' back to Dixie, that's the place I long to be
Where the cotton grows and the Swanee flows that's home sweet home to me
Where they meet you and they greet you with the sweetest how you all
Well, shut my mouth I'm a-headin' south on the Dixie Cannonball

On the Dixie Cannonball, on the Dixie Cannonball
Just listen to the whistle, it'll thrill you one and all
And I know there's someone waitin' with a great big "how you all?"
Well, shut my mouth I'm a-headin' south on the Dixie Cannonball
