Dixie Avenue

Album: Volunteer (2018)
  • Down in Rockingham County I was born and raised
    I'll be a Rock-town rocker for the rest of my days
    I was a rebel with a heart big enough for two
    When I met you on the corner of Dixie Avenue

    Just a valley girl from out on 33
    Fire in her eyes like the Devil's dream
    We were two young lovers with nothin' to do
    So we danced down the middle of Dixie Avenue

    Down at the Quick Lunch, makin' up plans
    Ridin' with Jonny out to Raleigh Springs
    This town's got no future: it's all in the past
    So let's rattle our bones before they lay us to rest

    When the light comes shinin' from a southern moon
    We'll be dancin' down the middle of Dixie Avenue
    When the big, bright sun starts a-burnin' through
    We'll still be a-dancin' on Dixie Avenue
    Keep on dancin' on Dixie Avenue

    Down in Rockingham County summer fell into fall
    Leaves turned gold by the old stone wall
    We met at the Quick Lunch, she told me the news
    There's gonna be a daddy on Dixie Avenue

    Down at the courthouse, a-makin' up plans
    Callin' up Jonny, he's my best man
    This town is our future, we put down our roots
    And bought a little house down on Dixie Avenue

    And when the light comes shinin' from a southern moon
    We'll be dancin' down the middle of Dixie Avenue
    When the big, bright sun starts a-burnin' through
    We'll still be a-dancin' on Dixie Avenue
    Keep on dancin' on Dixie Avenue
    Keep on dancin' on Dixie Avenue Writer/s: Critter Fuqua, Ketch Secor
