MY DIXIE DARLING
 

My Dixie darlin’, listen to this song I sing,

beneath the silver moon, with my banjo right in tune. 

My heart is ever true, I love no one but you,

my Dixie darlin’, my Dixie queen.

 

Way down below the Mason Dixie's line,

 down where the honey suckles are entwined.

there's where the southern winds are blowing,

there's where the daisies growing.

The girls of the north in their gay finery

whirling around in the society,

singing a song of Dixie darling,

where I long to be

 

My Dixie darlin’, listen to this song I sing,

beneath the silver moon, with my banjo right in tune. 

My heart is ever true, I love no one but you,

my Dixie darlin’, my Dixie queen

 

Goin down south to have a big time,

see my girl in old Caroline,

I'll drink my booze and do as I please,

for all those girls I long to squeeze.

Singing songs of Dixie darlings,

there's where I long to be goin,

down where the jellyroll's rollin

with my Dixie queen

 

My Dixie darlin’, listen to this song I sing,

beneath the silver moon, with my banjo right in tune. 

My heart is ever true, I love no one but you,

my Dixie darlin’, my Dixie queen
