Way on Down in Dixie


I may not take her shopping
With regularity;
I may not shower her with diamonds
On my meager salary;
I may not give her many things
Unless I find them free,
But way on down in Dixie land
There’s a wife that’s right for me.

I do not care for shopping
Or the consumer mentality;
I do not need bright diamonds
That sparkle gaudily;
I do not need so many things–
I live quite frugally,
And way on down in Dixie land
There’s a husband right for me.
