Words by Roger Sherman. Music by Geo. T. Goldthwalte.

In the happy land of Dixie, 'neath the sunny Southern skies,
Where the sweet camella's fragrance fills the air.
Lives a soul bewitching maiden with her soft and dreamy eyes.
And cheeks so like the roses bright and fair,
I dared to dream that some day to my bosom I would fold
Her little form with loving heart so true;
But she met one day another whom she knew in days of old,
And then I lost my little Dixie Lu.

Lu, Lu, my sweet Dixie Lu,
I'm sad since she left me. but what can I do?
Lu, Lu, to her I'll be true.
Forever and always she's my Dixie Lu.

I trust that she'll be happy in her cosy little nest,
For smiles like hers would change night into day.
To fill her home with sunshine she must try to do her best,
Then happiness will surely come her way;
My memory still lingers o'er the good old by-gone days.
The many happy hours that I knew;
And of how my little charmer was so sweet to me always,
And now I loved my little Dixie Lu.-Cho.
