raise southern dixie lyrics – southern raiders band

raise southern dixie

she wore red ribbons in her hair

her soft skin was brown with blonde hair hanging down
across the horizon the sun went away
the moonlight lit the beach with the sounds of crashing waves

all down the south bridge the troops gather round
waiting for the king’s word to take the village to the ground
we were just lovers caught in between
a line drawn by war that never should have been

and she cried raise southern dixie your flag up to the sky
must you battle till the last of you have died
i want my freedom like all the rest
but to give my life out here is not what i find best

she was a woman like none i’ve ever seen
she’s pretty as premadona from a filthy magazine
the starlight grew fast across the sky
my fingers touched her lips a sin but pure delight

we had only moments but they seemed like hours
to hold and embrace before the bullets filled the air
and as i look in her eyes the blood runs down her face
just another loss of life oh what a human waste

and i cried raise southern dixie your flag up to the sky
must you battle till the last of you have died
i want my freedom like all the rest
but to give my life out here is not what i find best
and i cried raise southern dixie oh…. oh
