Rock-a-bye your baby
With a Dixie melody
When you croon, croon a tune
From the heart of Dixie

And just hang my cradle, mammy mine
Right on that Mason Dixon line
And swing it from Virginia
To Tennessee with all the heart that's in ya

Weep no more, my lady
Sing the song for me
Hey, little Joe, just as though
You had me on your knee

A million baby kisses, I'm gonna deliver
The minute that you sing that Swanee River
Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye baby
With a Dixie melody

Oh, weep no more, my fair lady
Why don't you sing the song for me?
Hey, little Joe, just as though
You had me right down

A million baby kisses, I said, I said I'm gonna deliver
The minute that you sing that, oh, Swanee River
Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye baby
With a Dixie melody

One more time, yeah

A million baby kisses, I'm gonna deliver
The minute that you sing, that, oh, Swanee oh, River
Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye baby
With a Dixie melody, oh
