GUEST,JOHN OF ELSIE`S BAND Folklore: Where is Dixie (57* d) RE: Folklore: Where is Dixie 22 Jun 04

Since Dixie is under discussion here can anyone identify or shed any light on a snippet of the song below I knew as a child from a gramophone record in my grandmothers collection. It must date from the 1930`s-1940`s.
"When I see the smoke arising from that little old chimney pot
And mixing with the green leaves on the tree.
I guess I`ll start a-running and I know I`ll never stop
Till I fall down by that cabin on my knees

I`m going back, going back, oh happy days
I`m gonna see my Dinah and baby there
I`ll never leave Old Dixie Land again

"Yodelling Chorus"

All help gratefully recieved,
Ta, John
