DIXIE'S LAND.
Key of C. I wish I was in de land ob cotton, Old times dar am not forgotten; Look away ! look away! look away! Dixie Land ! In Dixie Land whar I was born in, Early on one frosty mornin'; Look away ! look away ! look away ! Dixie Land !
Chorus.—Den I wish I was in Dixie ! hooray ! hooray !
In Dixie Land I '11 take my stand, to lib and die in Dixie! Away, away, away down south in Dixie ! Away, away, away down south in Dixie!
Ole missus marry "Will-de weaber,"
William was a gay deceaber; Look away ! look away ! look away ! Dixie Land !
But, when he put his arm around 'er,
He smiled as fierce as a forty-pounder; Look away! look away! look away ! Dixie Land! —Chorus.
His face was sharp as a butcher's cleaver;
But dat did not seem to greab 'er; Look away! look away! look away! Dixie Land !
Old missus acted de foolish part,
And died for a man that broke her heart; Look away! look away! look away! Dixie Land! —Chorus.
A'ow here 's a health to the next old missus,
And all de gals dat want to kiss us; Look away ! look away ! look away ! Dixie Land !
But, if you want to drive 'way sorrow,
Come and hear dis song to-morrow; Look away! look away! look away! Dixie Land! —Chorus.
Dar 's buckwheat cakes an' Tngen batter,
Makes you fat or a little fatter; Look away ! look away ! look away ! Dixie Land !
Den hoe it down an' scratch your grabble,
To Dixie Land I 'm bound to trabble; Look away! look away! look away! Dixie Land! —Chorus.
