Verse:
Peo -ple brag, Peo -ple boast, And con -sist -ent -ly drink a toast,
To a place that a lot of them place at the top of the list.
Are they wrong? Are they right? Is there rea -son for their de -light?
I must live in doubt, Till the day that I find out.
 
Chorus:
Is it true what they say a -bout Dix -ie?
Does the sun real -ly shine all the time?
Do the sweet Mag -nol -ias blos -som at ev -'ry -bod -y's door?
Do folks keep eat -ing 'pos -sum, Till they can't eat no more?
Is it true what they say a -bout Swan -ee?
Is a dream by that stream so sub -lime?
Do they laugh, do they love, like they say in ev -'ry song?
If it's true, that's where I be -long.
