Subject: Chord Req: White Mansions Album: Dixie, Hold on
From: DaveB

Help! Is anyone familiar with the White Mansions Album: A tale from the American Civil War, written and composed by Paul Kennerley.

I'm trying to find any Tab or Chords for the song "Dixie, Hold on" performed by Waylon Jennings.

I've search all over the web, but with no luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

It looks like two A&M various-artists albums "White Mansions" (1978) and "Legend of Jesse James" (1980) have been combined and reissued as one CD: A&M CD #540791, 1999.

allmusic has a sound sample of DIXIE HOLD ON, from which I transcribed this:

...stand alone and cut America in two
Means ever'thing's lost; the Constitution's fallin' [or "fallen"] through.
To leave the Union is to weaken what is strong.
You think it's right; they think it....

DIXIE, HOLD ON
Paul Kennerley
"White Mansions", 1978
 G
(INTRO)
G F
Oh Dixie, watch this black cloud roll
C
She's coming down to tear away your soul
G F
How much longer can you pretend
C
That your plough ain't threatened by their pen
G Am C G
Hold on - oh, oh, oh Dixie hold on

G F
To stand alone and cut America in two
C
Means everything's lost, the constitution's fallen through
G F
To leave the Union is to weaken what is strong
C
You think it right, they think it morally wrong
G Am C G
But you'll fall - oh, oh, oh Dixie you'll fall

Am D
King Cotton, your reign is shadowed with pain
G
And burning emotion
Am D
You need slaves to keep alive but the North could help you survive
G
Your misguided notion

(GUITARS & HARP)
G F C
G F C
G Am C G

G F
Oh, oh Dixie, you are bold and strong
C
You could have 'em beat before too long
G F
You have a birthright, a lifestyle to defend
C
You must hold on, until the very end
G Am C G
Hold on - oh, oh, oh Dixie, hold on

Am C G
