The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

Dixie Darling

Way down below the Mason Dixon line
Down where the honeysuckles are entwined
5 There's where the southern winds are blowing
4 There's where the daisies 1 growing
Girls up north in their gay finery
Whirlin' around in the society
5 Singing songs about my dixie darling
4 Where I long to 1 be

My dixie darling, listen to the song I sing
Beneath the 5 silver moon, With my 4 banjo right in 1 tune
My heart is ever true, I love no one but you
My dixie 5 darling, my dixie 1 queen

Goin' down south to have a big time
See my gal in old Caroline
Drink my booze and do as I please
For that gal I long to squeeze
And I'm singing songs about my dixie darling
There's where I long to be going
Down where the jelly rolls growing
To meet my dixie queen
