  • On the outskirts of town, there's a little night spot
    Dan dropped in about five o'clock
    Took off his jacket, said, the night is short
    He reached in his pocket and he flashed a quart

    He hollered, rave on, children, I'm with you
    Rave on, cats, he cried
    It's almost dawn, the cops are gone
    Let's all get Dixie fried

    Well, Dan got happy and he started raving
    He pulled out a razor, but he wasn't shaving
    And all the cats knew to jump and hop
    'Cause he was born and raised in a butcher shop

    He hollered, rave on, children, I'm with you
    Rave on, cats, he cried
    It's almost dawn, the cops are gone
    Let's all get Dixie fried

    Well, the cops heard Dan when he started to shout
    They all ran in to see what it was about
    And I heard him holler as they led him away
    He turned his head and this is what he had to say

    He hollered, rave on, children, I'm with you
    Rave on, cats, he cried
    It's almost dawn, the cops are gone
    Let's all get Dixie fried

    Now, Dan was the bravest man that we ever saw
    He let us all know, he wasn't scared of the law
    The black dog barked, but the boy didn't flinch
    He said, it ain't my fault, hon, that I been pinched

    He hollered, rave on, children, I'm with you
    Rave on, cats, he cried
    It's almost dawn, the cops are gone
    Let's all get Dixie fried

    Now, Dan was the bravest man we ever saw
    He let us all know he wasn't scared of the law
    And I heard him holler as they led him away
    He turned his head and this was what he had to say

    He hollered, rave on, children, I'm with you
    Rave on, cats, he cried
    It's almost dawn, the cops are gone
    Let's all get Dixie fried

    Yeah, it's almost dawn, the cops ain't gone
    And I've been Dixie fried
