dixie babylon lyrics – cracker

section 1:
a-e-f#m-(slide down to e)-d(sus4)
a-e-f#m-(slide down to e)-d(sus4)

section 2:
d-e-f#m-c#m-d-bm-e(7)
d-e-f#m-c#m-d-bm-e(7)

a we went down to the e old part of town
by the f#m stinking c*n*l and the cotton (slide down to e)-d(sus4) mill
under a a ghetto palm with her e bicycle shorts on
with a f#m gesture she (slide down to e) said to d(sus4) me

d i e really must con-f#m-fess
c#m i’d like to d get undressed bm with e(7) you
d and though the e thought had never really f#m crossed my mind,
c#m oh, but d that was a lie bm so we went a-e(7)-long

we ran out under the turning leaves
and the fetid earth, it was damp and cool
autumn’s feeble light on her salty neck
all innocence it was lost

i really must confess
i’m feeling quite distressed, my stars are always crossed
but i have always taken more than i have given back
and as a matter of fact, i’ve given nothing up

repeat section 1

repeat section 2 to finish

end chord: a
