Lyrics: 

Banks And Streams Of Dixieland

You banks and streams of Dixieland
Where magnolias bloom fresh and fair
How can you sing, you pretty birds
While I am weary, full of care

You’ll break my heart, all you songbirds
That sing above the green leaf fern
You remind me of sweetest words
That’s all forgone not to return

(Instrumental)

Often I strolled beside the stream
All lined with the tall long leaf pine
And heard birds sing love’s melodies
As sweetly as I did to mine

With happy heart I plucked a rose
So sweet upon its thorny stem
Oh, as for me I was not chose
I have the thorn and she’s with him

You banks and streams of Dixieland
I still dream of my own love there
