The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down

Lyrics

Virgil Caine is the name, and I served on the Danville train,
Til Stoneman's cavalry came and tore up the tracks again.
In the winter of '65, we were hungry, just barely alive.
By May the tenth, Richmond had fell, it's a time I remember, oh so well,

Love you Levon, you left us way too soon.
Cuz the Canadian Robbie Robertson wrote MORONS
Joan Baez is SCUM!!!!
I guess every southern man has a little Dixie left in him. Some hide it better than others. There is right and wrong all over. Sad truths about our countries history.

Yes this song does mention Robert E. Lee. My guess is the reason is because it is part of the song
Damn the war of Northern Aggression!! ! !
Zac Brown did a good job!
Love it! Sorry Joan Baez has a much better version.
That last comment is sad. People don't give this justice. Pure perfection.

There was a steam ship that plied the waters of the Mississippi called the Robert E. Lee and some from the South would remove their hats when it sailed by.
Why did Levon say the Robert E. Lee? Or did I imagine it?
