There's a place in Dixie where I want to be
Friend's a-waiting there to welcome me
I'm a gonna see 'em when the sun goes down
In dear old dixie where I'll settle down

There'll be banjers a-playing on that old platform
A few kind faces with smiles so warm
We'll all shake hands and gather round
When I get back to Dixie and that old home town

There'll be Nunior Cha Yaw and Diddley too
Daddy, little Ralph and big Jack too
We'll all join hands and dance around
When I get back to Dixie and my old home town

There's a girl a-waiting at the old home place
A great big smile upon her face
I'm gonna marry her and build a home
And from dear old Dixie I'll never roam
