Daniel Decatur Emmett Quotes

    Dixie's Land

    1 I wish I was in de land ob cotton,
    2 Old times dar am not forgotten;
    3 Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land!
    4 In Dixie Land whar I was born in,
    5 Early on one frosty mornin,
    6 Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land!

    7 Den I wish I was in Dixie! Hooray! Hooray!
    8 In Dixie's Land we'll take our stand, to lib an' die in Dixie.
