On the outskirts of town, there's a little night spot 
Dan dropped in about five o'clock 
Took off his jacket, said, the night is short 
He reached in his pocket and he flashed a quart 

He hollered, rave on, children, I'm with you 
Rave on, cats, he cried 
It's almost dawn, the cops are gone 
Let's all get Dixie fried 

Well, Dan got happy and he started raving 
He pulled out a razor, but he wasn't shaving 
And all the cats knew to jump and hop 
'Cause he was born and raised in a butcher shop 

He hollered, rave on, children, I'm with you 
Rave on, cats, he cried 
It's almost dawn, the cops are gone 
Let's all get Dixie fried

Well, the cops heard Dan when he started to shout 
They all ran in to see what it was about 
And I heard him holler as they led him away 
He turned his head and this is what he had to say 

He hollered, rave on, children, I'm with you 
Rave on, cats, he cried 
It's almost dawn, the cops are gone 
Let's all get Dixie fried

Now, Dan was the bravest man that we ever saw 
He let us all know, he wasn't scared of the law 
The black dog barked, but the boy didn't flinch 
He said, it ain't my fault, hon, that I been pinched 

He hollered, rave on, children, I'm with you 
Rave on, cats, he cried 
It's almost dawn, the cops are gone 
Let's all get Dixie fried 

Now, Dan was the bravest man we ever saw 
He let us all know he wasn't scared of the law 
And I heard him holler as they led him away 
He turned his head and this was what he had to say 

He hollered, rave on, children, I'm with you 
Rave on, cats, he cried 
It's almost dawn, the cops are gone 
Let's all get Dixie fried

Yeah, it's almost dawn, the cops ain't gone 
And I've been Dixie fried
