Dixie Ukulele Chords

Oh, I [D]wish I was in the [D7]land of cotton,
[G]old times there are not forgotten,
Look a[D]way, look a[Bm]way, look a[A]way Dixie [D]Land.
In Dixie’s Land, where [D7]I was born in, [G]early on one frosty mornin’,
Look a[D]way, look away, look a[A]way Dixie [D]Land.

I wish I [D]was in [G]Dixie, Hoo[Em]ray! Hoo[E7]ray!
In [D]Dixie Land I’ll [G]take my stand to [D]live and die in [A]Dixie.
A[D]way, a[A]way, a[D]way down south in [A]Dix[D]ie.
A[D]way, a[A]way, a[D]way down south in [A]Dix[D]ie

Ole [D]Missus marry “[D7]Will the weaver”,
[G]Willum was a gay deceiver
Look a[D]way, Look a[Bm]way, Look a[A]way, Dixie [D]Land
But when he put his [D7]arm around ‘er, he [G]smiled fierce as a forty pounder,
Look a[D]way! Look away! Look a[A]way! Dixie [D]Land

I wish I [D]was in [G]Dixie, Hoo[Em]ray! Hoo[E7]ray!
In [D]Dixie Land I’ll [G]take my stand to [D]live and die in [A]Dixie.
A[D]way, a[A]way, a[D]way down south in [A]Dix[D]ie.
A[D]way, a[A]way, a[D]way down south in [A]Dix[D]ie

His [D]face was sharp as a [D7]butcher’s cleaver,
[G]but that did not seem to grieve ‘er
Look a[D]way, Look a[Bm]way, Look a[A]way, Dixie [D]Land
Ole Missus acted the [D7]foolish part, [G]and died for a man that broke her heart
Look a[D]way! Look away! Look a[A]way! Dixie [D]Land

I wish I [D]was in [G]Dixie, Hoo[Em]ray! Hoo[E7]ray!
In [D]Dixie Land I’ll [G]take my stand to [D]live and die in [A]Dixie.
A[D]way, a[A]way, a[D]way down south in [A]Dix[D]ie.
A[D]way, a[A]way, a[D]way down south in [A]Dix[D]ie

Now [D]here’s to the health to the [D7]next ole Missus,
[G]an’ all the gals that want to kiss us;
Look a[D]way! Look a[Bm]way! Look a[A7]way! Dixie [D]Land
But if you want to [D7]drive ‘way sorrow,
[G]come and hear this song tomorrow
Look a[D]way! Look away! Look a[A]way! Dixie [D]Land

I wish I [D]was in [G]Dixie, Hoo[Em]ray! Hoo[E7]ray!
In [D]Dixie Land I’ll [G]take my stand to [D]live and die in [A]Dixie.
A[D]way, a[A]way, a[D]way down south in [A]Dix[D]ie.
A[D]way, a[A]way, a[D]way down south in [A]Dix[D]ie

There’s [D]buckwheat cakes and [D7]Injun batter,
[G]makes you fat or a little fatter
Look a[D]way, Look a[Bm]way, Look a[A]way, Dixie [D]Land
Then hoe it down and [D7]scratch your gravel,
[G]to Dixie’s Land I’m bound to travel,
Look a[D]way! Look away! Look a[A]way! Dixie [D]Land

I wish I [D]was in [G]Dixie, Hoo[Em]ray! Hoo[E7]ray!
In [D]Dixie Land I’ll [G]take my stand to [D]live and die in [A]Dixie.
A[D]way, a[A]way, a[D]way down south in [A]Dix[D]ie.
A[D]way, a[A]way, a[D]way down south in [A]Dix[D]ie
