The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down (Live)

Lyrics

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

I grew up in the south and never heard this song, but then again I'm 16. This was my ex-stepdad's favorite song and now I try to listen to it as much as possible because its a hell of a song.

People STILL put DIXIE down. Those people can't stand the fact that the most talented, most polite and the best looking people come from Dixie. .....NOT TALKING ABOUT MYSELF. I'm not any of these things except for POLITENESS!! ! ! ;) ;) ;)

I had the privilege to see Levon a week before he died. He was looking rough but he still had his chops. He sang Ophelia and gave it his all. You are truly missed.

Very overlooked group. Miss you Levon!

If you look up Rock Band in the encyclopedia and you have got to find a picture of 'The Band' with Levon out front singing this song. Video version is also stunning.

What a performance. You know a song is brilliantly written and performed when the lyrics create clear visuals in your head. I agree with hechto... I can feel the pain in this song.

Not a Southerner, but this is one of those songs that always gets an emotional reaction from me. This is possibly the greatest version.
