I'SE GWINE BACK TO DIXIE.
Key of G.
I 's gwine back to Dixie,
No more 1 's gwine to wander; My heart 's turned back to Dixie, I can 't stay here no longer. I miss de old plantation, My home and my relation. My heart's turned back to Dixie, And I must go.
Chorus.I 's gwine back to Dixie, I 's gwine back to Dixie, I 's gwine where the orange-blossoms grow; For I hear the children calling, I see their sad tears falling,
My heart "s turned back to Dixie, And I must go.
I 've hoed in fields of cotton, I 've worked upon the river, I used to think if 1 got off, I 'd go back thereno; never.
But time has changed the old man, His head is bending low, His heart 's turned back to Dixie, And he must go.
Chorus.I 's gwine back to Dixie, etc.
I'm traveling back to Dixie;
My step is slow and feeble, I pray the Lord to help me.
And lead me from all evil.
And, should'my strength forsake me,
Then, kind friends, come and take me; My heart 's turned back to Dixie, And I must go.
Chorus.I 's gwine back to Dixie, etc.
