8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Hello there stranger!  How do you do?
There's something I'd like to say to you.
Don't be surprised,  You're recognized!
I'm no detective but I just surmised,
You're from the place where I long to be,
Your smiling face seems to say to me:
You're from my homeland,  My sunny homeland,
Tell me can it be?
Are you from Dixie? I say from Dixie!
Where the fields of cotton beckon to me.
I'm glad to see you, Tell me how be you,
And the friends I'm longing to see.
Are you from Alabama, Tennessee, or Caroline,
Any place below the Mason Dixon Line.
Then your from Dixie! Hurray for Dixie!
'Cause I'm from Dixie too!
