Lyrics

VERSE 1
Say, did you ever stray,
From the ones you love for quite a while?
Then start back home again,
Never thinking of each lonely mile.
If you did you’ll understand
Why I’m bound for Dixieland;
So before another day,
I’ll be on my merry way. And say

CHORUS
Tomorrow, tomorrow,
How happy I will be,
Tomorrow, tomorrow,
Back on my mammy’s knee.
Lawdy me! what a great delight,
When I get a familiar sight,
Of the fuzzy old cat sneakin’ from the stable,
Lickin’ up milk on the kitchen table.
I know, tomorrow,
A pair of loving arms,
Will hold me, enfold me as of yore.
Somehow I just can’t wait for a choo-choo train,
I’ll hop right in an aeroplane,
And be in my Dixie home again tomorrow
Tomorrow.

VERSE 2
Born where the waving corn,
Greets you with the dawn on ev’ry side.
And where a cordial hand,
Makes you feel so grand, you fill with pride.
It’s the southland that I mean
Where the skies are all serene;
In a jiffy I’ll be gone,
Care or sorrow I’ll have none.
For on

CHORUS
