My Dixie Darling


My Dixie [G]darlin’, listen to this song I sing,

beneath the [D]silver moon, with my banjo right in [G]tune.

My heart is ever true, I love no one but you,

my Dixie [D]darlin’, my Dixie [G]queen.


[G]Way down below the Mason Dixie's line,

down where the honey suckles are entwined.

[D]there's where the southern winds are blowing,

[G]there's where the daisies growing.

The [G]girls of the north in their gay finery

whirling around in the society,

[D]singing a song of Dixie darling,

where I long to [G]be.   + CHORUS


Goin down south to have a big time,

see my girl in old Caroline,

I'll drink my booze and do as I please,

for all those girls I long to squeeze.

Singing songs of Dixie darlings,

there's where I long to be goin,

down where the jellyroll's rollin

with my Dixie queen.    + CHORUS
