lyrics

Way down below the Mason Dixon line
Down where the honeysuckles are entwined
There's where the southern winds are blowing
There's where the daisies growing
The girls up north in their gay finery
Whirlin' around in the society
A-singing songs about my dixie darling
Where I long to be

My dixie darling, listen to the song I sing
Beneath the silver moon
With the banjo right in tune
My heart is ever true
I love no one but you
My dixie darling, my dixie queen

[instrumental]

I'm a-goin' down south to have a big time
Gonna see my gal in old Caroline
I'll drink my booze and do as I please
For that gal I long to squeeze
And I'll be singing songs about my dixie darling
There's where I long to be going
Down where the jelly rolls a-rollin'
With my dixie queen

My dixie darling, listen to the song I sing
Beneath the silver moon
With the banjo right in tune
My heart is ever true
I love no one but you
My dixie darling, my dixie queen

[instrumental]

My dixie darling, listen to the song I sing
Beneath the silver moon
With the banjo right in tune
My heart is ever true
I love no one but you
My dixie darling, my dixie queen

My dixie darling, my dixie queen

Mix together old-time brother duets from the mountains and good ol’ honky-tonk country songs, add in some blazing bluegrass- style solos and tight sibling harmonies, and you get an idea of what an Abbott Brothers show is like. The songs are fresh takes on time-tested gems of old. But beneath that new-band sheen lies a pair of brothers that have been intimately comfortable on stage for years. ... more
