    I received a letter, like so many others
    Mama said, "How's life in the city?
    My your sister's grown
    And you just missed those awful dixie storms
    Thank God they've passed
    Those awful dixie storms"
    I left so long ago
    I'd forgotten just what for
    But they say
    When a big city beckons
    You have no choice but to go
    And here, there are no dixie storms
    Thank God, there are no dixie storms
    And the smoke on the street
    Makes me wonder why I stay away
    From those gentle dixie storms
    When I was younger
    How I would wonder
    What made the sweet Georgia rain
    Make me feel so warm
    And how God made a dixie storm
    And how I loved those dixie storms
    And the rumble in the sky
    Brings a shudder to my soul
    Oh how I loved those dixie storms

    Does anyone else feel the power of a Dixie Storm in this quiet song singers voice? How does she do it? There are far too many storms that do lots of damage. One song, sung this way, the way Maria does it, could heal most of the damage. Thanks for preserving it here.

    Those Dixie storms are really nice when they blow up a twister and it takes your double wide trailer and throws it like a matchstick

      @Alittlebitnuts2day Not really...I don't live in a mobile home...I just know the ramblings of a fool when I see it...

      @Tank MacNamara I must've hit close to home with my comment, kind of like the twister that probably hit close your home and blew your narrow wide mobile home straight out of the trailer park you lived in!

    The Georgia rain on my bedroom window made me want to hear this. What a treasure! Thank you.
