8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Rock-a-bye your baby with a Dixie melody,
When you croon, croon a tune, from the heart of Dixie.
Just hang my cradle, Mammy mine, Right on that Mason Dixon Line,
And swing it from Virginia, To Tennessee with all the love that's in ya.
"Weep No More My Lady, " sing that song again for me,
And "Old Black Joe" just as tho' you had me on your knee.
A million baby kisses I'll deliver, The minute that you sing the "Swanee River,"
Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye-baby with a Dixie melody.
