Dixie's Land (Daniel Decatur Emmett) Away down south in de land ob cotton Old times dar am not forgotten Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land. In Dixie Land where I was born in Early on a frosty mornin' Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land. cho: 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. Ole missus marry "Will de Weaber," William was a gay deceiber; Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land. But when he put his arm around 'er, He smiled as fierce as a forty pounder, Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land. His face was sharp as a butcher's cleaber, But dat did not seem to greab' er; Look away, etc. Ole missus acted de foolish part, And died for a man dat broke her heart, Look away, etc. Now here's a health to the next old Missus, An' all de gals dat want to kiss us; Look away, etc. But if you want to drive 'way sorrow, Come and hear dis song tomorrow, Look away, etc. Dar's buckwheat cakes and Injun batter, Makes you fat or a little fatter; Look away, etc. Den hoe it down an' scratch your grabble, To Dixie's Land I'm bound to trabble, Look away, etc. RG
