Front: Dixie’s Land by Daniel D. Emmett, New York City, 1859. 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 monrin’, Look away, look away, look away, Dixie Land. Then I wish I was in Dixie, Hoo-ray! Hoo-ray! In Dixie Land I’ll take my stand, To live and die in Dixie. A-way, A-way, A way down South in Dixie, A-way, a-away, A way down South in Dixie.
