'Tis both a happy and sad text at the same time I think.

The Song of Dixie

Oh, 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 one frosty mornin'
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land (Chorus)

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 .

Ole Missus marry "Will the weaver", Willum was a gay deceiver.
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land
But when he put his arm around’er, He smiled fierce as a forty pounder!
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land (Chorus)

His face was sharp as a butcher's cleaver, But that did not seem to grieve'er
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land
Ole Missus acted the foolish part, And died for a man that broke her heart
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land (Chorus)

Now here's a health to the next ole Missus, An ' all the gals that want to kiss us;
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land
But if you want to drive 'way sorrow, Come and hear this song tomorrow
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land (Chorus)

There's buckwheat cakes and Injun batter, Makes you fat or a little fatter;
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land
Then hoe it down and scratch your gravel, To Dixie 's Land I'm bound to travel,
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land (Chorus)


The "I wish I was in Dixie " song complete with midi and all!
Hooray! Hooray!
