Thread Name: Origins: Dixie Darling (A Gillespie & P Wenrich)
Subject: Lyr Add: DIXIE DARLING^^
From the Once-Born's song book:


Way down below the Mason-Dixon Line,
There's where the honeysuckles are entwined,
There's where the Southern winds are blowing,
There's where the daisy's growing.
Girls in the North in their gay finery,
Whirling around in society,
Singing the song of my Dixie Darling,
Where I long to be

My Dixie Darling,
Listen to the song I sing,
Beneath the silv'ry moon,
With my banjo right in tune,
My heart is ever true,
I love no one but you,
My Dixie Darling,
My Dixie queen.

Going down South, gonna have a big time,
See my girl down in old Caroline,
Drink my booze and do as I please
For all the girls I long to squeeze,
Singing the song of my Dixie Darling,
There's where I long to be going,
There's where the jelly roll's rolling
With my Dixie queen.
