American Ballads and Folk Songs
Old missus acted de foolish part,
And died fer de man dat broke her heart j
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.
Now here's a health to the nex' old missus
And all de gals dat want to kiss usj
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.
But if you want to drive away sorrow,
Come and hear dis song tomorrow;
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.
Dar's buckwheat cakes and Injun batter, - Makes you fat er a little fatter; Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land. Den hoe it down an' scratch your grabbel, To Dixie's land I'm bound to trabbel; Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.
Another stanza popular with Confederate soldiers:
Way down South in the fields of cotton, Cinnamon seed and sandy bottom,
Look away! look away! Then way down in the fields of cotton, Vinegar shoes and paper stockin's,
Look away in Dixie land.
