Lyrics

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 one frosty morning
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

Ole Missus marry “Will the weaver”
Willium was a gay deceiver
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land
But when he put his arm around ‘er
He smiled fierce as a forty pounder
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land

His face was sharp as a butcher’s cleaver
But that did not seem to grieve ‘er-
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land
Ole Missus acted the foolish part
And died for a man who broke her heart
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land

Now here’s a health to the next ole Missus
An’ all the gals that want to kiss us
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land
But if you want to drive ‘way sorrow
Come and hear this song tomorrow
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land

There’s buckwheat cakes and injun batter
Makes you fat or a little fatter
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land
Then hoe it down and scratch your gravel
To Dixie’s Land I’m bound to travel
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land
