Music and Lyrics by Daniel Decatur Emmett

  C 
I wish I was in the land of cotton,

F 
Old times there are not forgotten,

      C 
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

In Dixie Land where I was born in,

F 
Early on a frosty mornin', 

      C 
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

                     F    D7           G7 
Then I wish I was in Dixie, Hooray! Hooray!

   C               F 
In Dixie Land I'll take my stand 

   F               G 
to live and die in Dixie,

 C     G     C 
Away, away, away down south in Dixie,

       G     C                 G7 C 
Away, away, away down south in Dixie.
