lyrics

Ole Miss Dixie, she is dead
Let's dig a hole and put her to rest
She don't need no headstone or fancy words said
She don't need no pillow under her head
Just a little red dirt on her pretty white dress
Put her out in the woods where the wild beasts tread
And let nobody ever say her name again
'Cause old Miss Dixie, she is dead

Ole King Cotton, he is dead
Somebody dig a hole and put him to rest
He don't need no headstone or fancy words said
He don't need no pillow under his head
He needs just a little red dirt on his face
Or maybe at the bottom of lake
Nobody needs to remember his name
'Cause Ole King Cotton, he is dead

Some say the south is the sweetest place
Some say it's bitter and a little two-faced
Some say it's the Garden of Eden in all time and space
But I just say, "Thanks for the Catfish" and clean my plate
