Is it true what they say about Dixie?
Does the sun really shine all the time?
Do the sweet magnolias blossom at everybody's door?
Do the folks keep eating possum 'til they can't eat no more?

Is it true what they say about Swanny?
Is a dream by the stream so sublime
Do they laugh? Do they love like they say in every song?
If it's true that's where I belong

Is it true what they say about Dixie?
Does the sun really shine all the time?
Well do the sweet magnolias blossom at everybody's door?
Do the folks keep eating that possum 'til they can't eat no more?

Is it true what they say about Swanny?
Is a dream by the stream so sublime
Do they laugh, love like they say in every song?
If it's true that's where I belong
