50. DIXIE. (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* Den I wish I was in Dixie, hooray! Hooray! In Dixie Land I'll take my stand To lib and die in Dixie; Away, away, away down South in Dixie, Away, away, away down South in Dixie.
51. ANNIE LAURIE.
(C)
Maxwelton's braes are bonnie,
Where early fa's the dew, And it's there that Annie Laurie
Gave me her promise true.
Gave me her promise true, Which ne'er forgot will be. And for bonnie Annie Laurie I'd lay me doon and dee.
Her brow is like the snawr-drift,
Her throat is like the swan, Her face it is the fairest
That e'r the sun shown on.
That e*r the sunlaldwn on, * * And dark blue is her e'e,        i
And for bonnie Annie Laurie, I'd lay me doon and dee.
