Lyrics

Lyrics:
First verse
I've read your letter, Mammy O'Mine, Now I feel better, Mammy O'Mine, Still I'm kinda homesick, too, No one can cure me, but you.
Chorus
Mammy O'Mine, Below that Old Dixon Line, Oh, how I'm longing to kiss you, I miss you, all of the time, I kiss your picture each night, And read the letters you write, For they remind me, of days of long ago, Oh! Lordy, how I'd like to be with you When I'm alone, My thoughts go wandering home, Then I start thinking of you, And feeling so blue, I could cry, Now I know why, Daddy used to say, the good Lord bless'd us, When he gave us you, cause you're the bestes', Angel divine, You wonderful Mammy O'Mine. Mammy O'Mine, Below that Old Dixon Line, Oh, how I'm longing to kiss you, I miss you, all of the time, I kiss your picture each night, And read the letters you write, For they remind me, of days of long ago, Oh! Lordy, how I'd like to be with you When I'm alone, My thoughts go wandering home, Then I start thinking of you, And feeling so blue, I could cry, Now I know why, Daddy used to say, the good Lord bless'd us, When he gave us you, cause you're the bestes', Angel divine, You wonderful Mammy O'Mine.
Second verse
When night is falling, Mammy O'Mine, I hear you calling, Mammy O' mine, Like I did in childhood days, Days I'll remember, always,
(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.
