LAST DIXIE CHRISTMAS

(female vocal)

My baby's cryin'
He ain't been fed
My pappa's cryin'
Shakin' his head
My mamma's cryin'
Her boys are dead
They're all cryin'
Eyes stained blood red.

Our boys are dyin'
Our souls to save
This whole land's dyin'
White snow stained red
This whole land's cryin'
Our boys are dead
This whole land's cryin'
Over fresh dug graves.

I know they're dyin'
Just like my kid
I know they're dyin'
Like our boys did
They've lost all hope
Can't make it right
No way to cope
Can't see the light.

BRIDGE
But I keep smilin'
It's Christmas Day
I see the Lord
He lights my way.

CHORUS
The last Dixie Christmas
My boy's comin' home
The last Dixie Christmas
I feel it in my bones
The last Dixie Christmas
Christ will come again
The last Dixie Christmas
To wash all our sin.

Won't make the summer
I see the signs
Lee must surrender
Can't hold that line
This war won't last
It's windin' down
This war won't last
Peace comin' down.

The dyin' ends
Sorrow will cease
The cryin' ends
There will be peace
My boy comes home
All safe and sound
My boy comes home
To raise his son.

REPEAT BRIDGE/CHORUS

Lord Jesus cried
To save our souls
Lord Jesus died
To save our souls
That's when I'll cry
When He returns
That's when I'll cry
When His light burns.

REPEAT CHORUS
