Rock-a-bye your baby with a Dixie melody
When you croon, croon a tune from the heart of Dixie
Just place my cradle, mammy mine
Right on the 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
Soft and low, just as though
You had me on your knee

A million baby kisses I'd deliver
If you would only sing that Swanee River
Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye baby with a Dixie melody
