Dixie's Land (1916 recording)

Lyrics:

I wish I was in the land of cotton,
Old times they are not forgotten;
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

In Dixie Land where I was born in,
Early on one frosty mornin,
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

Old Missus marry "Will-de-weaber,"
Willium was a gay deceaber;
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

But when he put his arm around'er,
He smiled as fierce as a forty-pound'er,
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

Dar's buck-wheat cakes an 'Ingen' batter,
Makes you fat or a little fatter;
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

Den hoe it down an scratch your grabble,
To Dixie land I'm bound to trabble.
Look away! Look away! Look away! Dixie Land.

Swanee River (1915)

Lyrics: "Old Folks at Home", by Stephen Foster, 1851 Way down upon de Swanee Ribber, Far, far away, Dere's wha my heart is turning ebber, Dere's wha de old folks stay. All up and down de whole creation Sadly I roam, Still longing for de old plantation, And for de old folks at home. Chorus All de world am sad and dreary, Eb-rywhere I roam; Oh, darkeys, how my heart grows weary, Far from de old folks at home! 2nd verse All round de little farm I wandered When I was young, Den many happy days I squandered, Many de songs I sung. When I was playing wid my brudder Happy was I; Oh, take me to my kind old mudder! Dere let me live and die. 3rd Verse One little hut among de bushes, One dat I love Still sadly to my memory rushes, No matter where I rove. When will I see de bees a-humming All round de comb? When will I hear de banjo strumming, Down in my good old home? Click Here For Video. Source: Youtube

Alma Gluck - Old Black Joe

Lyrics: Songwriters: LUTHER/PHILLIPS Gone are the days when my heart was young and gay Gone are the toils of the cotton fields away Gone to the fields of a better land I know I hear those gentle voices calling, "Old Black Joe" I'm coming, I'm coming For my head is bending low I hear those gentle voices calling, "Old Black Joe" I'm coming home (I'm coming home) I'm coming home (I'm coming home) Oh-oh my head is bending low I hear those gentle voices calling, "Old Black Joe" Old Black Joe, Old Black Joe, Old Black Joe Why do I weep when my heart should feel no pain? Why do I sigh that my friends come not again? Grieving for forms now departed long ago I hear their gentle voice calling, "Old Black Joe" Where are the hearts once so happy and free? The children so dear that I held upon my knee? Gone to the shore where my soul has long'd to go I hear their gentle voice calling, "Old Black Joe" Click Here For Video. Source: Youtube

Rex Allen - Son, Don't Go Near The Indians

Lyrics: Songwriters: MANN (CHORUS) Son, don't go near the Indians Please stay away Son, don't go near the Indians Please do what I say Since I was just a little boy I liked to roam the hills And to hear wild stories About the Indians Was my biggest thrill I'd shout and yell And holler like them I wore moccasins on my feet And I'd make believe I was under a teepee Every time I went to sleep My hair was jet black And I was twenty-one Lots of pretty girls around But the paleface maidens Didn't thrill me none Around my Cochise County hometown (CHORUS) One day I went to the reservation And there by a shallow creek Was a beautiful Indian A-fetching water And I just had to speak She smiled at me then quickly left But the next day she returned And it wasn't very long Til I told her how The love in my heart burned (CHORUS) I told my daddy I'd found a girl Who meant the world to me And tomorrow I'd ask the Indian chief For the hand of Nova Lee Dad's trembling lips spoke softly As he told me of my life Twas then he said I could never take This maiden for my wife (Spoken) Son, the white man and Indian Were fighting when you were born And a brave called Yellow Sun Scalped my little boy So I stole you to get even For what he'd done Though you're a Full-blooded Indian, son I love you as much as my Own little feller that's dead And, son, Nova Lee is your sister And that's why I've always said (CHORUS) Click Here For Video.

Gene Sullivan - Please Pass The Biscuits

Lyrics: ( singers) Just picture a lad, between Mom and Dad Its Sunday the tables all set There's uncles, there's aunts, and cousins galore There's plenty of food to be et The blessing is said, they reach for the bread It's a feast a king could afford There's clatter, there's chatter, but something's the matter There's someone who's being ignored (spoken) Uh, would you please pass the biscuits? Uh, would you pass the biscuits please? Same thing ever Sunday since I can't remember when Kinfolks all around the table and the biscuits at tuther end I got a plate of chicken and taters, and a lot of stuff like that All, all I need is a biscuit, but I wish you'd look where they're at I guess I could reach across the table, But that's ill-mannered, Mom always said I wish I had a biscuit, I just can't eat without bread Uh, would you pass the biscuits Uh, excuse me, would you please pass the biscuits All I want is a biscuit, nobody seems to care If they wouldn't talk so dog-gone loud They might be able to hear Hot doggies, they're half-finished eatin' and I ain't even begun I wish you'd look at them biscuits disappear, I'll be luck if I get a one Same thing ever Sunday, always company to be fed They're talkin' like they're wound up Boy, I wish I had a piece of bread HEY! Would, would, would you please pass the biscuits It looks like somebody would notice that I ain't started eatin' yet Sure be glad when they get their fill, and go into the parlor and set Then, by golly, I won't have to use my manners I'll just get a biscuit myself Well, I'll be a monkey's uncle, there ain't a biscuit left The only day of the week we get Sunday-fed And they've et up all the biscuits And, uh, I just can't eat without bread (singers) There's something the matter, no bread on the platter And he just can't eat without bread Lyrics from eLyrics.net Click Here For Video.
