Going Back to Dixie

Going Back to Dixie

I'm going back to Dixie, I'm going back to Dixie
I'm goin where the orange blossoms grow
Cause I miss my old plantation, my home and my relations
My heart turns back to Dixie, and I must go

I'm going back to Dixie, no more for to wander
I'm going back to Dixie, I can't stay here no longer
I hear the children calling, I see their sad tears fallin'
My heart turns back to Dixie, and I must go

I worked them fields of cotton, I worked up on the river
I use to think if I ever got off, I'd never go back no never
But times have changed the old man, his head is bending low
My heart turns back to Dixie, and I must go

I miss my beans and hominy, my pumpkin and red gravy
My appitite is fadin', so says my uncle davey
And if my friends forsake me , I pray the lord to take me
My heart turned back to Dixie, and I must go
