Banjos are a ringing, and the folks a singing, Down on Mobile Bay,
Stars are brightly shining, and my heart is pining, For the south each day.
My sweetheart is waiting, cute and fascinating, Where I left her by the ocean shore,
That is why I'm yearning, and my thoughts are turning, To Mobile once more.
On Mobile Bay, Honey stole my heart away,
Beside the sea, When she gave a loving kiss to me.
She said "Goodbye", While the moon was shining high,
On the dreaming, beaming, gleaming Mobile Bay.
