Lyrics:

Virgil Caine is the name
And I served on the Danville train
Till Stoneman's cavalry came
And they tore up the tracks again

In the winter of '65
We were hungry, just barely alive
By May the tenth, Richmond had fell
It's a time I remember, oh, so well

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singin'

They went
Na na na
Na na na

Back with my wife in Tennessee
When one day she called to me
Said, "Virgil, quick, come see
There goes the Robert E. Lee"

Now I don't mind choppin' wood
And I don't care if the money's no good
Ya take what ya need and ya leave the rest
But they should never have taken the very best

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the bells were ringing

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singin'

They went
Na na na
Na na na

Like my father before me, I'm a workin' man
Like my brother above me, who took a rebel stand
He was just eighteen, proud and brave
But a Yankee laid him in his grave

And I swear by the mud below my feet
You can't raise a Caine back up when he's in defeat

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singin'

They went
Na na na
Na na na

The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the bells were ringing
The night they drove old Dixie down
And all the people were singin'

They went
Na na na
Na na na
