The Princess of Dixie
A Dixie Girl is a True Southern Treasure
A sweet Magnolia blossom,
a Dixie damsel fair,
with eyes that shine like diamonds
and sunlight in her hair.
Her skin is soft as peach fuzz,
a voice like buttermilk.
But do not let this fool you
she's not all lace and silk.
For when the need arises
she can be strong as stone
and if provoked sufficiently
she'd best be left alone.
No truer friend has ever lived
of that you can be sure.
For even with a devilish streak,
her heart and soul is pure.
She strives to please her mother
and her grandmother too.
For steeped in rich tradition,
they both know what to do.
She's forever owned her daddy's heart
but now she owns one more,
and can at will take some young lad
a place he's never been before.
In the end he'll thank her
for there's not doubt it's true
The southern girl's a miracle
and precious through and through.
