Dixie Holiday

John Dodge
John Dodge


Cool breezes off the Gulf Stream blow

Warm lovers on the causeway

Me and Lady we’re cruising slow

On a Dixie holiday


Stars sparkle on the velvet night

Touch fingers and the sparks flow

Nat King Cole’s on the radio

On a Dixie holiday


And we get high just riding down the highway

Couldn’t care less about tomorrow

The miles roll by and melt into the dark

I been wondering where you are

Real life’s a hundred million miles away


Steam rising off of Ponchartrain

Mississippi in the moonlight

From Pensacola ‘cross to Mobile Bay

On a Dixie holiday


Fried chicken from a roadside stand

Dr. Pepper and a moon pie

Friendly faces baby ain’t life grand

On a Dixie holiday


Warm breezes off the Gulf Stream blow

Cool lovers on the causeway

Me and Baby know it’s time to go

On a Dixie holiday


Don’t you know I wish I was, I wish I was

I wish I was in Dixie
