American Trilogy?

I wish I was in land ob cotton, Old times dar am not forgotten, Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land. In Dixie Land whar' I was born in, Early on one frosty mornin',

Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

CHORUS Den I wish I was in Dixie, Hoo-ray! Hoo-ray! In Dixie land, I'll take my stand to lib and die in Dixie; Away, away, away down south in Dixie, Away, away, away down south in Dixie.

Old Missus marry Will-de-weaber, Willium was a gay deceaber; Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land. But when he put his arms around 'er He smiled as fierce as a forty-pounder, Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

His face was sharp as a butcher's cleaber, But dat did not seem to greab 'er; Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land. Old Missus acted the foolish part, And died for a man dat broke her heart, Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

Now here's a health to the next old Missus, And all the gals dat want to kiss us; Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land. But if you want to drive 'way sorrow, Come and hear dis song to-morrow, Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

Dar's buckwheat cakes an' Injun batter, Makes you fat or a little fatter; Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land. Den hoe it down and scratch your grabble, To Dixie's land I'm bound to trabble, Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

Trivia Oh God I wish I was in Dixie, this line was changed at live gigs to the place they were playing, for example “Oh god I wish I was in Gloucester”
