(Words by Robert Levenson / Music by G. Vernon Strout, 1917).
Dixie Lee the time has come to say goodbye, Dixie Lee,
now brush that tear drop from your eye. Tho' I'll leave
you far behind, you'll be always in my mind and some
day I'll come back, so don't you cry.
When the roses start a blooming in the spring, that is
when I'll be returning with the ring, on that bright and
happy day I will kiss your tears away and never once
again, dear, will I say.
Goodbye Dixie, my Dixie Lee keep a place in your heart
for me. When I'm there way over the foam, I'll dream of
you and home. Some day when the sun shines again,
we'll be as happy as can be, let's hope and pray until
that day, so goodbye Dixie Lee.
