Rock-a-bye your baby to a Dixie melody
When you croon, croon a tune from the heart of Dixie
Just place that 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
Sing "Old Black Joe" just as though you had me on your knee
A million baby kisses, I'll deliver
If you will only sing that "Swanee River"
Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye baby to a Dixie melody

"Weep No More, My Lady" - sing that song again, for me
Sing "Old Black Joe" just as though you had me on your knee
A million baby kisses, I'll deliver
If you will only sing that "Swanee River"
Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye baby to a Dixie melody
