Testo della canzone I Want To Be In Dixie 18 Jan 1912 di Irving Berlin
Album: Miscellaneous
1st verse:] I’m very glad
I’m very glad
Because a train I’m takin’
To that ne’er forgotten or forsaken
Sunny land of cotton, down to the town I was born
I’m glad I had
I’m glad I had
Enough to buy a ticket
Now I hope that there will be no pause
Let me tell you the reason is because:

[chorus:] I want to be
I want to be
I want to be down home in Dixie

Where the hens are doggone glad to lay
Scrambled eggs in the new mown hay

You ought to see
You ought to see
You ought to see my home in Dixie

You can tell the world I’m going to
D-I-X-I don’t know how to spell it
But I’m goin’
You bet I’m goin’
To my home in Dixieland

[2nd verse:] Conductor man
Conductor man
I’m kind o’ hard of hearin’
So just fix it when the train is nearin’
Dear old Dixie, better shout, holler out, good and loud
Conductor man
Conductor man
I’m goin’ to fall asleep now
Tell the motorman to start the train
Let me tell you when I wake up again
