Mammy mine Your little rollin' stone that rolled away Strolled away Mammy mine Your rollin' stone is rollin' home today There to stay Just to see your smilin' face Smile a welcome sign When I'm in your fond embrace Listen, Mammy mine... Rock-a-bye your baby with a Dixie melody When you croon, croon a tune from the heart of Dixie Just hang my cradle, Mammy mine Right on that Mason Dixon Line And swing it from Virginia To Tennessee with all the love that's in ya "Weep No More My Lady," sing that song again for me And "Old Black Joe" just as though you had me on your knee A million baby kisses I'll deliver The minute that you sing "The Swanee River" Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye-baby with a Dixie melody Any time I hear a mammy sing her babe to sleep Slumber deep That's the time The shadows 'round my heart begin to creep And I weep Wonder why I went away What a fool I've been Take me back to yesterday In your arms again... Rock-a-bye your baby with a Dixie melody When you croon, croon a tune from the heart of Dixie Just hang my cradle, Mammy mine Right on that Mason Dixon Line And swing it from Virginia To Tennessee with all the love that's in ya "Weep No More My Lady," sing that song again for me And "Old Black Joe" just as though you had me on your knee A million baby kisses I'll deliver The minute that you sing "The Swanee River" Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye-baby with a Dixie melody ********** ALTERNATE VERSE: Weep no more, my lady, sing that song again for me. Soft and low, just as though you had me on your knee A million baby kisses I'd deliver If you would only sing that "Swanee River" Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye baby with a Dixie melody **********
