I'm dreamin' tonight of Dixie, Cotton Fields and Whipperwhills
E B B7
Where I used to live and wander, Through the rocks and the rivs'
I can see my old dear mammy, while around the place she'd go
E B7 E
On my farm in Lousiana where the old Red River flows
E A E
Hiiiiiiiiiiiiii deeeeeeeeeeeee dooooooooooo looooooooooooooo - oooooooooooooooo (yodel)
You can hear them darkies crooning soft and low
and the twilight in the evening, so loooooooooooooooooooooow. (yodel)
So soft and looooooooooooooooooooooow (yodel)
On my farm in Louisiana where the old Red River Flows.
Instrumental Break: E, A, E, B, B7, E, A, E, B7, E)
Oh the lights tonight on Broadway. Electric lights shine bright as day.
On the beach on Coney Island, where the laughter makes you gay.
But I'm goin' back tonight love. On the icy wind she goes
To my farm in Louisiana where the old Red River Flows
