And no surprise here but there is some fiddle playing in this tune which I improvise a bit here on the guitar. Of course if you happen to have a fiddle player, this would be a good workout for him or her.

Ronnie Rogers wrote this song while driving down a highway in Tennessee. and Alabama happen to like it and so recorded it. Three different artists have made reference to this song including Brad Paisley, Russell Dickerson and the group Midland in three of their songs.

The band did create a music video for this song.


Dixieland Delight Lyrics


Rollin' down a backwoods, Tennessee by-way
One arm on the wheel
Holdin' my lover with the other
A sweet, soft, southern thrill
Worked hard all week; got a little jingle
On a Tennessee Saturday night
Couldn't feel better, I'm together
With my Dixieland Delight

Spend my dollar parked in a holler neath the mountain moonlight
Hold her up tight - Make a little lovin'
A little turtle dovin' on a Mason-Dixon night
Fits my life, oh so right - My Dixieland Delight

White-tail buck deer, munchin' on clover
Red-tail hawk sittin' on a limb.
A chubby old groundhog, croakin' bullfrog
Free as the feelin' in the wind
Home grown country girl, gonna give me a whirl
On a Tennessee Saturday night
Lucky as a seven, livin' in heaven
With my Dixieland Delight

Spend my dollar parked in a holler neath the mountain moonlight
Hold her up tight - Make a little lovin'
A little turtle dovin' on a Mason-Dixon night
Fits my life, oh so right - My Dixieland Delight

Spend my dollar parked in a holler neath the mountain moonlight
Hold her up tight - Make a little lovin'
A little turtle dovin' on a Mason-Dixon night
Fits my life, oh so right - My Dixieland Delight

With my Dixieland Delight
