lyrics

DIXIE DARLING
Way down below the Mason-Dixon line
There's where the honeysuckle are entwined
There's where the southern winds are blowin'
There's where the daisies' growin'
Girls up north in their gay finery
Whirling around in their soft satee
Singing the song of my dixie darling
Where I long to be

My dixie darlin'
Listen to the song I sing
Beneath the silv'ry moon
With my banjo right in tune
My heart's forever true
I love no one but you
My dixie darling
My dixie queen
Goin' down south, gonna have a good time
See my girl down in old Caroline
Drink my booze and do as I please
For all the girls I long to squeeze
Singing the song of my dixie darling
That's where I Long to be going
That's where the jellyroll's rolling
With my dixie queen
My dixie darlin'
Listen to the song I sing
Beneath the silv'ry moon
With my banjo right in tune
My heart's forever true
I love no one but you
My dixie darling
My dixie queen
