VERSE: Just got a letter with an invitation Sayin',/ "Come home, we're waitin' for you down home,/ And we'll be feelin' much better for the celebration/ If you are here for just this time of the year./ Leave all your blues, but bring your dancin' shoes."/ Now I understand just why I'm feelin' so grand,/ The Choo-Choo's blowin', blowin',/ Soon I will be goin' back to Sunny Dixie land.
CHORUS 01: At that Alabama Jamboree,/ Might soon now you can picture me/ A-"possum trottin'" round that old persimmon tree/ I'm goin' to stay way down in dear old Dixie/ With mammy and Sammy and my sweet sister Chloe/ And all the other folks I know./ Oh! Tell the world right where I'm goin' to be/ Down at that Alabama Jamboree.
CHORUS 02: Watermelons growin' on the vine/ Lawdy, folks, but ain't they lookin' fine!/ I'm goin' to bite my name thru ev'ry melon rine'/ I'm goin' to stay way down in dear old Dixie/ A-dancin' and prancin' like a swell levee bo/ With all the sweetest gals I know./ Oh! Tell the world right where I'm goin' to be/ Down at that Alabama Jamboree.
