DIXIE FLYER BLUES Bessie Smith Bessie Smith w Charlie Green (trombone) Fletcher Henderson (piano) Buster Bailey (clarinet) rec May 15th 1925 Hold that train! Hold that engine, catch me mama, get on board, Hold that engine, catch me mama, get on board, 'Cause my home ain't here, it's a long way down the road! On that choo-choo, mama gonna find a berth, On that choo-choo, mama gonna find a berth, Home into Dixieland, it's the grandest place on earth. Dixie Flyer, come on and let your driver roam, Dixie Flyer, come on and let your driver roam, Wouldn't say enough to save nobody's doggone soul. Blow your whistle, tell them mama's comin' too, Blow your whistle, tell them mama's comin' too, Take it up a little bit, 'cause I'm feelin' mighty blue. Here's my ticket, take it please, conductor man, Here's my ticket, take it please, conductor man, Homin' to my mammy, way down into Dixieland. (Contributed by Peter Akers - July 2008)
