VERSE 01: Way down below Mason Dixon line,/Down where the honeysuckles entwine,/Where southern winds are forever a blowing,/Roses a bloom and magnolias a growing;/There’s where the girls fill my heart with delight,/Banjos in tune while the moon’s shining bright,/Singing a song to my own Dixie darling,/Singing a song of love.CHORUS: My Dixie Darling,/List to this song I sing/Beneath a silv’ry moon,/With banjo right in tune./My heart is ever true,/I want no one but you,/My Dixie Darling,/My Dixie Queen./My DixieVERSE 02: Girls of the north in their gay finery,/Whirling around in society,/Somehow to me never seemed so appealing,/Over me now comes a feeling a stealing;/Let me go back to my old southern home,/There with my darlings to ramble and roam,/There’s where my heart is forever returning,/There’s where I long to be.
