Plantation Piecesy Camp Meeting Songs
FOAH O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING
Old Dixy was a bondman
Down in Dixie land, Down in dear old Dixie,
Dixie, Dixie land; And early in the morning
When daylight lit the bush, I seem to see old Dixy
A crooning with the thrush.
'Tis foah o'clock in the morning
And the sun begins to shine, The clover am in blossom
And the leaf am on the vine; 'Tis foah o'clock in the morning
And the bird am in the tree, And foah o'clock in the morning
Am just the time for me.
The snow has long since whitened
Old Dixy's head and hands, Down in dear old Dixie,
Dixie's, Dixie's lands; And early in the morning
When daylight lights the bush, I seem to hear old Dixy
A crooning with the thrush.
