Biography

Chris Hicks has been brandishing his style of rock and roll since his teens. Whether it was in his early groups - Legacy, the Fresh Figs and Loose Change - or with southern rock legends the Outlaws and the Marshall Tucker Band... or as a solo artist, The Hitman has captivated audiences with his netherworld vocals, arena echoing axmanship and his freight train harmonica playing. He's a compelling songwriter of the first order. He's Toy Caldwell and Ronnie Van Zant rolled into one. He is southern rock royalty in the making - and if anyone doubts that, I challenge you to catch his act... for it is the stuff legends are made of

Lyrics

Down In Dixie

Written By: Chris Hicks

Down in Dixie
by Chris Hicks

Way down south
Of the Mason Dixon line
Home is where the heart is
That's where you'll find mine
Jackson, Mississippi
On down to New Orleans
Their picking up their troubles yaĆ­ll
And chasing down their dreams
If that ain't something like heaven
Then I don't wanna go

Down in Dixie
Where I lay by burden down
Dixie
It ain't right to burn it down
Down in Dixie
I got my eye on you
Anything
You want me to

Underground Atlanta
On Friday night
Sheffield, Alabama
In the early morning light
Make peace in your mind
And your heart full of joy
You can take the boy from Dixie
But you can't get it outta the boy
If you can't tell me
Then I don't wanna know

Down in Dixie
Where I lay by burden down
Dixie
It ain't right to burn it down
Down in Dixie
I got my eye on you
Anything
You want me to

Memphis, Tennessee
Don't you know
The moon is rising
And the sun is sinking low
Macon, Georgia
Charlotte, Caroline
It's an old sweet song
Lord, I keep it on my mind
If that ain't something like heaven
Then I don't wanna go

Down in Dixie
Where I lay by burden down
Dixie
It ain't right to burn it down
Down in Dixie
I got my eye on you
Anything
You want me to
