WHERE THE OLD RED RIVER FLOWS
(Jimmie Davis)

I'm dreamin' tonight of Dixie, cotton fields an' whippoorwills,
I spent my happy childhood 'neath the rocks and among the rills.
I can see my dear old mother as around the place she goes,
On my farm in Louisiana where the old Red River flows.

(Chorus:) Ah-lee-oh-de-lady-oo.
You can hear the old folks singin' soft an' low
At the twilight in the evenin' so soft an' low-oo-oo, so low-oo.
On my farm in Louisiana where the old Red River flows.

The lights so bright on Broadway, the city's bright as day,
And there on Coney Island where the ripplin' waters play
I'll be headin' south for Dixie on that I. C. when she goes
To my farm in farm in Louisiana where the old Red River flows. (Chorus)

Jimmie Davis/Peer Int., BMI
As sung by the Whitstein Brothers on "Rose of My Heart," 1984.
Also in the Rounder collection "Hills of Home," 1995.
