Verse
          G                   C        D
She had a dead-end job at the national bank
       G                   C      D
And a deadbeat husband who always drank
           G                            C      D
So when he didn't come home she had the gin to thank
         Em   D   G  C
For the tears in her eyes
   Em           D            G       A
So Dixie packed up and said her goodbyes...

Chorus
             G     C    D          
And she went driving so far away nobody's gonna find her
G   C       D
Flyin' just fast enough to leave it all behind her
Em                  D                      G           C
But she didn't know till she hit the road, deep in her soul
Am          
She's got the fire and the fight of a gypsy
C                               D
Ain't nothin' stronger than the heart of Dixie

G  C  D  -heart of Dixie-

G  C  D

Verse
       G                           C     D
It's a funny thing when your world falls down
           G                              C   D
It's got a way of showin' you what you're all about
    G                      C       D
Now Dixie's got her wheels pointed south
              Em    D    G   C
And she ain't never look-ing back
Em     D            G         A
Nobody knew she was brave like that

Chorus
             G     C    D          
And she went driving so far away nobody's gonna find her
G   C       D
Flyin' just fast enough to leave it all behind her
Em                  D                      G           C
But she didn't know till she hit the road, deep in her soul
Am          
She's got the fire and the fight of a gypsy
C                               D
Ain't nothin' stronger than the heart of Dixie

G  C  D  -heart of Dixie-

G  C  D *let ring*

Bridge
      G                    C         D
Yeah, Dixie woke up to the truth one day
            G                        C        D
Grabbed her cheap sunglasses and her lipstick case...

Chorus
              G     C    D          
And she went driving so far away nobody's gonna find her
G   C       D
Flyin' just fast enough to leave it all behind her
Em                  D                      G           C
But she didn't know till she hit the road, deep in her soul
Am          
She's got the fire and the fight of a gypsy
C                               D
Ain't nothin' stronger than the heart of Dixie

G      C      D  
                 -the heart of Dixie-
G      C      D
   O-o-ooh       -the heart of Dixie-
G       C      D    G        
        O-o-oh
