"Are You From Dixie ('Cause I'm from Dixie Too)" is a song written by lyricist Jack Yellen and composer George L. Cobb, who teamed up to create several Vaudeville-era songs celebrating the American South. It was originally recorded by Billy Murray in 1916.

The song has been covered by many pop and country artists. One of the most successful recordings was by American country music artist Jerry Reed. His version was released in August 1969 as the only single from his album, Jerry Reed Explores Guitar Country. The song reached a peak of #11 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles chart.[1]
