Somewhere Down The Dixie Line
Jimmy Rogers

Goodbye, Norman*
I'm on my way
Today is my
Busy day
Grips are packed and I'm feeling gay
Here's all I can say

  Drop me down in Caroline
  Caroline, that would be fine
  Any place below the Dixon line
  Alabama or Tennessee
  Sure enough looks good to me
  I know I'll find some kinfolks there of mine

Been away too long
Up with that ice and snow
So now I crave to travel back
Where warm warm breezes blow
Far from now on when riding me
If not here just I would please

* means probably "man from the North", could be something else, too.
On Mary Chapin Carpenter's version it sounds like "Northern line"
