Writen by Vaughn Horton
Key of E Demo made by Hank Williams 1949
This is on the 10CD box set.

(E) I'M A'HEADIN' BACK TO DIXIE,
THAT'S THE (A) PLACE I LONG TO (E) BE,
WHERE THE (A) COTTON GROWS AND THE (E) SUWANEE FLOWS,
THAT'S (F#7) HOME SWEET HOME TO (B7) ME,
(E) WHERE THEY MEET YOU AND THEY GREET YOU,
WITH THE (A) SWEETEST HOW YOU ARE,
WELL (E) SHUT MY MOUTH, I'M A'HEADIN' SOUTH,
ON THE (B7) DIXIE CANNON- (E) BALL.

CHORUS:
(E) ON THE DIXIE CANNONBALL, ON THE (A) DIXIE CANNONBALL,
JUST (E) LISTEN TO THE WHISTLE, IT'LL (F#7) THRILL YOU ONE AND (B7) ALL,
AND I (E) KNOW THERE'S SOME ONE WAITIN', WITH THE (A) SWEETEST HOW YOU ARE,
WELL (E) SHUT MY MOUTH, I'M A'HEADIN' SOUTH, ON THE (B7) DIXIE CANNON- (E)
BALL.

(E) WHEN I CROSS THEM SMOKEY MOUNTAINS. I'LL BE (A) COUNTIN' EVERY (E) MILE,
WHEN THE (A) WHISTLE BLOWS, I'LL BE ON MY (E) TOES,
AND I'LL (F#7) SHUFFLE DOWN THE (B7) AISLE,
AND I (E) KNOW I'LL NOT BE LONESOME,
WHEN I (A) SEE THEM TREETOPS TALL,
I'M COMING (E) THROUGH ON THE BIG CHOO-CHOO,
ON THE (B7) DIXIE CANNON- (E) BALL.

Repeat chorus:

(E) Yes, I'm goin' back to dixie, that's the (A) place I long to (E) be,
Where the (A) cotton grows and the (E) Suwanee flows,
That's (F#7) home sweet home to (B7) me,
(E) Where they meet you and they greet you,
With the (A) sweetest how you are,
Well (E) shut my mouth, i'm a'headin' South,
On the (B7) Dixie Cannon- (E) ball.

repeat chorus:
