Dixie Darling

My Dixie darling
Listen to the song I sing
Beneath the silvery moon
Banjo right in tune
I love no one but you
My heart is ever true
My Dixie darling
My Dixie queen

Going down South to have a big time
See my girl in Old Caroline
Drink my booze and do as I please
For all them girls I long to squeeze
Singing a song of Dixie darling
There's where I long to be goin'
Down where the jellyrolls going
With my Dixie queen

My Dixie darling....

Way down South the Mason Dixie Line
Down where the honeysuckles are entwined
Down where the southern winds are blowing
There's where the daisies growing
The girls of the North in gay finery
Whirling around in society
Singing the song of Dixie darling

My Dixie darling....
