Aretha Franklin — Rock-A-Bye Your Baby With A Dixie Melody lyrics

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 heart that's in ya.

Weep no more, my lady.
Sing the song for me.
Soft and low, just as though
You had me on your knee.

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

Weep no more, my fair lady.
Why don't you sing the song for me.
Soft and low, just as though
You had me, had me on your knee.

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

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.
