Schwa Lyrics

Wish I Was in Dixie

Lyricist: Daniel Decatur Emmett
Vocalist: Cliff Starbuck
I wish I was in the land of cotton, 
old times there are not forgotten, 
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land. 
In Dixie land where I was born in, early on a frosty mornin', 
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land. 

Chorus: 
Then I wish I was in Dixie, hooray! Hooray! 
In Dixie land I'll take my stand, to live and die in Dixie, 
Away, away, away down south in Dixie, 
Away, away, away down south in Dixie. 

Old Missus marry Will de Weaber, Will-yum was a gay deceaber, 
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land. 
But when he put his arm around her, 
smiled as fierce as a forty pounder. 
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land.

(Chorus) 

Dars buckwheat cakes an' ingen batter, makes you fat or a little fatter, 
Look away, look away, look away, Dixie land. 
Den hoe it down and scratch your grabble to Dixie's land 
I'm bound to travel, 
Look away, look away, look away Dixie land.
