~*~` DIXIE`~*~

Oh I wish I was in the land a cotton
Old times there are not forgotten
Look away, look away Look away,  Dixieland
Oh, I wish I was in Dixie Away,
Away In Dixieland I'll take my stand
To live and die in Dixie
For Dixieland, that's where I was born
Early Lord, one frosty morn'
Look away, look away Look away, Dixieland
Glory, Glory,  Hallelujah
Glory, Glory,  Hallelujah
Glory, Glory,   Hallelujah
His truth is marching  on

So hush little baby, don't you cry
You know your daddy's bound to die
But all my trials Lord, will soon be over
Glory, Glory,  Hallelujah
His truth is marching on
His truth is marching on

Written by Mickey Newbury
Sung by Elvis Aaron Presley

An American Trilogy is a medley of two patriotic songs: Dixie, the anthem of the U.S. South, and The Battle Hymn of the Republic,
The marching song of the U.S. North during the American Civil War.
The conflict began in 1861 to 1865 and took 620,000 lives,laid waste to large sections of the South,and decided the future course of the nation.
Elvis Presley performed this song in his 1973 international satellite telecast, 'Elvis Aloha from Hawaii'~
