Written by Hank Williams

[C]All the stations up here they don’t sign off with [F]Dixie
The [C]way they did in sweet home Ala[G7]bam
And [C]the people here don’t sip Jack Daniels [F]whiskey
The [C]way they do in the [G7]Tennessee mountain [C]land
I’ve always heard a lot about the Big [F]Apple
So [C]I thought I’d come up here and [G7]see
But [C]all I’ve seen so far is one big [F]hassle
Wish [C]I was camped out [G7]on the Okeecho[C]bee
If [F]this is the promise land I’ve [C]had all I can stand
And I’m heading back below that Dixie [G7]line
No I [F]just don’t fit in and I’ll [C]never come back again
But I’m busted here and [F]I got Dixie on my [C]mind
Oh I’m stuck up here and [F]I got Dixie on my [C]mind
These people never smile or say a [F]word
They’re [C]all to busy trying to make an extra [G7]dime
Oh I’d [C]love to haul them all down around Spartan[F]burg
And [C]show ’em how to raise [G7]hell in Caro[C]line
Oh the things you know that I miss most of [F]all
Is the [C]freedom of the rivers and the [G7]pines
They [C]don’t do much hunting and fishing up here you [F]know
But I [C]have met a few squirrels [G7]and one por[C]cupine
Well [F]if this is the promise land I’ve [C]had all I can stand
Wish I was down in Houston town to[G7]night
Now I [F]just don’t fit in and I’ll [C]never be back again
But I’m busted here and [F]I got Dixie on my [C]mind
Lord I’m stuck up here and [F]I got Dixie on my [C]mind[/chordpress]

Who is Hank Williams Jr.?
– Randall Hank Williams (born May 26, 1949), known professionally as Hank Williams Jr. or Bocephus, is an American singer-songwriter and musician. His musical style is often considered a blend of Southern rock, blues, and country. He is the son of country music legend Hank Williams.
Williams began his career following in his famed father’s footsteps, covering his father’s songs and imitating his father’s style. Williams’ first television appearance was in a 1964 episode of ABC’s The Jimmy Dean Show, in which at age fourteen he sang several songs associated with his father. Later that year, he was a guest star on Shindig!.Williams’ style evolved slowly as he struggled to find his own voice and place within country music. This was interrupted by a near-fatal fall off the side of Ajax Peak in Montana on August 8, 1975. After an extended recovery, he challenged the country music establishment with a blend of country, rock, and blues. As a multi-instrumentalist, Williams’ repertoire of skills includes guitar, bass guitar, upright bass, steel guitar, banjo, dobro, piano, keyboards, saxophone, harmonica, fiddle, and drums.From 1989 through October 2011, his song “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight”, refashioned as “All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night”, had been used to open broadcasts of Monday Night Football until it was pulled after Williams made controversial and widely criticized comments comparing President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler. The song returned to open the show in 2017 although it was temporarily removed in 2020.On August 12, 2020, Williams was selected to be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
