VP_000224 Verse 1Ev'ry winter you will notice that the birdies in the sky, To the south will always fly, Now perhaps you're wondering why, It's a land of sunshine And the only place a real wise bird should be, There's a lot of good things waiting there, For you and me. Chorus 1Just to make our clothes the cotton grow, In dear old Alabam', Each hungry mouth looks to the south, For sweet Virginia Ham, From Tennessee comes melody That's played by ev'ry band, And if you're talking of chicken, Oh, Maryland! Louisiana sugar is sweeter than the rose, Just thank old Carolina, That's where Bull Durham grows, If you're dreaming of a girl to love, That's the place to win her hand, Take my advice, Anything is nice, If it comes from Dixieland. Verse 2Dixie, Dixie is a garden far away from snow and ice, It's a perfect paradise, And the home of ev'ry thing nice, Ev'rybody loves it, 'Cause they know about it's many diff'rent charms, Like a mother she will welcome you With open arms.
