                              A                                                                               E
        I've seen the bright lights of Memphis and the Commodore Hotel
                                                                       E7           A
        And underneath a street lamp I met a Southern belle
        A7           D                       A                                   E
        Well, she took me to the river where she cast a spell
                                                                                   E7         A
        And in that Southern moonlight she sang this song so well

                          C#2       A                                                                      E
                          If you'll be my Dixie chicken, I'll be your Tennessee lamb
                                                                                   A add4
                          And we can walk together down in Dixieland
                          C#2        A add4
                          Down in Dixieland, whoa whoa wow
                                                                                       A2 A add2 (x2) G#

        Yeah well, we made all the hot spots - my money flowed like wine
        And then that low-down Southern whiskey began to fog my mind
        And I don't remember church bells or the money I put down
        On the white picket-fence and boardwalk of the house at the edge of town

        A7        D                A                                          E
        Oh, but boy do I remember the strain of her refrain
                                                                                           E7            A
        And the nights we spent together and the way she called my name

                          If you'll be my Dixie chicken, I'll be your Tennessee lamb
                          And we can walk together down in Dixieland
                          Down in Dixieland
                                                          A2 A add2 (x2) G#

        Yeah, well it's been a year since she ran away,
           guess that guitar player sure could play
        She always liked to sing along, she's always handy with a song
        Then one night in the lobby of the Commodore Hotel
        I chanced to meet a bartender who said he knew her well

        And as he handed me a drink, he began to hum a song
        And all the boys there at the bar began to sing along

                          If you'll be my Dixie chicken, I'll be your Tennessee lamb
                          And we can walk together down in Dixieland
                          Down in Dixieland...
                                                              A2 A add2 (repeat & fade)
