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

Chorus:
Den I wish I was in Dixie, Hooray! Hooray!
In Dixie Land I'll take my stand
to lib and die in Dixie;
Away, Away, Away down South in Dixie;
Away, Away, Away down South in Dixie.

2 Ole Missus marry Will, de weaber,
Willium was a gay deceaber,
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land!
But when he put his arm around'er he
Smil'd as fierce as a forty pounder;
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land! [Chorus]

3 Dar's buckwheat cakes an' Ingen batter,
Makes you fat or a little fatter,
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land!
Den hoe it down an' scratch your grabble,
To Dixies Land I'm bound to trabble;
Look away! Look away!
Look away! Dixie Land! [Chorus]
