DEEP IN THE HEART OF THE SOUTH Peter Tinturin / Lawrence Ella Fitzgerald & her Savoy Eight rec May 24th 1937 New York Oh cover me with Dixie skies While the wind is crooning lullabies, Tuck me into paradise Somewhere deep in the heart of the south. Yellow moon is hangin' low Over fields of cotton white as snow, My heart longs to turn in hope Somewhere deep in the heart of the south. Laughter fills the afternoon, and every evening Lovers linger on the Swanee shore; i can see magnolias bloom around a cabin door, And that's where I'm goin', sure as you're born! I'm a weary rollin' stone, Made my mind up and I'm rollin' home, Come on feet and start to roam Somewhere deep in the heart of the south. Laughter fills the afternoon, and every evening Lovers linger on the Swanee shore; i can see magnolias bloom around a cabin door, And that's where I'm goin', sure as you're born! I'm a weary rollin' stone, Made my mind up and I'm rollin' home, Come on feet and start to roam Somewhere deep in the heart of the south. Say come on feet and do your stuff! The way is long and the road is rough, Somewhere deep in the heart of the south. (Contributed by Peter Akers - November 2008)
