    Traditional
    Dixie

    I wish I was in the land of cotton,
    Old times there are 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.

    Chorus:
    Then I wish I was in Dixie, hooray! Hooray!
    In Dixie land I'll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie,
    Away, away, away down south in Dixie,
    Away, away, away down south in Dixie.

    Old Missus marry "Will de Weaber",
    Willium was a gay deceaber,
    Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.
    But when he put his arm around her,
    He smiled as fierce as a forty pounder.
    Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.

    Chorus

    His face was sharp as a butcher's cleaver
    but that did not seem to grieve her;
    look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie land.
    Old missus acted the foolish part,
    and died for a man that broke her heart.
    Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie land.

    Chorus

    Now here's a health to the next old missus
    and all the gals that want to kiss us;
    look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie land.
    But if you want to drive away sorrow,
    come and hear this song tomorrow,
    look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie land.

    Chorus

    Dars buckwheat cakes an' ingen batter,
    makes you fat or a little fatter,
    Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.
    Den hoe it down and scratch your grabble
    To Dixie's land I'm bound to travel,
    Look away, look away, look away Dixie land.

    Chorus
