In 1971, Mickey Newbury combined three songs into one which were Dixie, The Battle Hymn Of The Republic and All My Trials. The following year, Elvis did the same with a few changes to fit his act. Newbury had a #9 in the US with his arrangement and Elvis got his to #31. In the UK, the Elvis version reached #8.

Elvis also performed this song on his 1973 "Aloha From Hawaii" television special and in concerts frequently right up until the time of his death in 1977.

An American Trilogy Lyrics

Oh I wish I was - in the land of cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Look away, look away, look away Dixieland

Oh I wish I was in dixie - away away
In dixieland I'll take my stand - to live and die in dixie

For in Dixieland, I was born
Early Lord one frosty morning
Look away, look away, look away Dixieland

Glory, glory hallelujah ----- Glory, glory hallelujah
Glory, glory hallelujah --------- His truth is marching on
So hush little baby - Don't you cry
You know your daddy's ---- bound to die
But all ------ my trials Lord ----------- will soon be over

Glory, glory, hallelujah --------His truth is marching on
His truth is marching on
