Lyrics

Lyrics:
First verse
I've just come back from the South today And there is one thing I'd like to say Tho' I've been most ev'rywhere I've never seen such gals as they have down there It seems that each little peach yo usee Is just as sweet as a peach can be Tho' I can't describe them all to you Let me name you just a few
Chorus
There's Mary down in Maryland She's mighty pretty And sweet Virginia too She'll make a hit with you You'll dippy over Mississippi And the gals named Caroline They're birds of a feather So they flock together And believe me they're just fine Then there's Lucy Anna with naughty eyes And a peach named Georgia who takes the prize So if you get lonesome anytime Come across the Mason Dixon Line And I'll introduce you to those Southern Gals. There's Mary down in Maryland She's mighty pretty And sweet Virginia too She'll make a hit with you You'll dippy over Mississippi And the gals named Caroline They're birds of a feather So they flock together And believe me they're just fine Then there's Lucy Anna with naughty eyes And a peach named Georgia who takes the prize So if you get lonesome anytime Come across the Mason Dixon Line And I'll introduce you to those Southern Gals.
Second verse
I kind of wish I'd have stay'd down there It's not so much that I need the air But it's true and plain to see Those little southern gals made a hit with me And when I march to the wedding tune I've got a hunch I'll be marching soon When you see my bride you'll understand Why I'm stuck on Dixieland
(Chorus)

The derogatory terms, images, and ideas that appear in some of this sheet music are not condoned by the University of Mississippi. They do represent the attitudes of a number of Americans at the times the songs were published. As such, it is hoped that the sheet music in this collection can aid students of music, history, and other disciplines to better understand popular American music and racial stereotypes from the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.
