Dixie

by Boxcar Willie

I wish I was in the land of cotton,
Old times there are not forgotten,
Look away, look away,
Look away, Dixieland.

In Dixieland, where I was born,
Early on one forsty morn,
Look away, look away,
Look away, Dixieland.
Well, I wish I was in Dixie,
Hurray, hurray.
In Dixieland, I'll take my stand,
To live and die in Dixie.
Away, away,
Away down south in Dixie.

Old Missus is goin' with Will the weaver,
But ol' Will's a big deceiver,
Look away, look away,
Look away, Dixieland.

Old William got an evil eye,
Gonna make the Missus cry,
Look away, look away,
Look away, Dixieland.

Well, I wish I was in Dixie,
Hurray, hurray.
In Dixieland, I'll take my stand,
To live and die in Dixie.
Away, away,
Away down south in Dixie.

OId William left for parts unknown,
Left ol' Missus all alone.
Look away, look away,
Look away, Dixieland.

Old Missus, she just sit an' cry,
Far away look in her eye.
Look away, look away,
Look away, Dixieland.

Well, I wish I was in Dixie,
Hurray, hurray.
In Dixieland, I'll take my stand,
To live and die in Dixie.
Away, away,
Away down south in Dixie.
