I'se Gwine Back To Dixie ~ Lyrics

I'se gwine back to Dixie,
I'se gwine no more to wander,
My heart's turned back to Dixie,
I can't stay here no longer;
I've left the old plantation,
My home and my relation,
My heart's turned back to Dixie
And I must go.

CHORUS.

I'se gwine back to Dixie,
I'se gwine back to Dixie,
I'se gwine where the orange blossoms grow,
For I hear the children calling,
I see their sad tears falling,
Me heart's turned back to Dixie,
And I must go.

I've hoed in fields of cotton,
I've worked upon the river,
I used to say if I got off
I'd go back there, no never;
But time has changed the old man,
His head is bending low,
His heart's turned back to Dixie,
And he must go.--CHORUS.

I'se traveling back to Dixie,
My step is slow and feeble,
I pray the Lord to help me,
And keep me from all evil;
And should my strength forsake me,
Then kind friends come and take me;
My heart's turned back to Dixie,
And I must go.--CHORUS.
