The Heart of Dixie

Album: Danielle Bradbery (2013)
Charted: 58
  • She had a dead-end job at the National Bank
    And a deadbeat husband who always drank
    So when he didn't come home she had the gin to thank
    For the tears in her eyes
    So Dixie packed up and said her goodbyes

    She went driving so far away nobody's gonna find her
    Flying just fast enough, to leave it all behind her
    But she didn't know till she hit the road, deep in her soul
    She's got the fire and the fight of a gypsy
    Ain't nothing stronger than the heart of Dixie
    The heart of Dixie

    It's a funny thing when your world falls down
    It's got a way of showing you what you're all about
    Now Dixie's got her wheels pointed south
    And she ain't never looking back
    Nobody knew she was brave like that

    She went driving so far away nobody's gonna find her
    Flying just fast enough, to leave it all behind her
    But she didn't know till she hit the road, deep in her soul
    She's got the fire and the fight of a gypsy
    Ain't nothing stronger than the heart of Dixie
    The heart of Dixie

    Yeah Dixie woke up to the truth one day
    Grabbed her cheap sunglasses and her lipstick case

    And she went driving so far away nobody's gonna find her
    Flying just fast enough, to leave it all behind her
    But she didn't know till she hit the road, deep in her soul
    She's got the fire and the fight of a gypsy
    Ain't nothing stronger than the heart of Dixie
    The heart of Dixie

    Oh
    The heart of Dixie
