 Last morning I did tread the creek  
 G 
 Thinking how my boots do leak  
      D 
?Twas then that I was fain to speak  
    A              D 
 To all you Naiads dear.  

D Well I?ll swim the french broad river G And become a little thinner D When I lay me down to dinner A At Dixie?s house to dine. D Well I?ll order in the brandy G And wine and summer shandy D A stronger braver man I?ll be A D For thee and me and mine.
D A year ago today I sprung G From stone to rock aye every one D Amid the river wash and run A With my sweat-heart near. Bm The river-rocks did hold their fire G And with them my true love?s desire D And Johnny if you?ll be my squire A I?ll take you as my dear. Refrão D But Janus meant to bind the lees G With a tether of ice about the knees D And when the river walk did freeze A My true love to me sang. Bm Last year I drank you down so wild G When you were cordial as a child D A tasty draft of bitter-and-mild A The glass it loudly rang. Refrão D Had I the cocky red-breast song G To whistle Dixie all night long D For all the world that?s suffered wrong A And all you naiads dear.
D Well I'll swim the french broad river G And become a little thinner D When I lay me down to dinner A At Dixie?s house to dine. D Well I?ll order in the brandy G And wine and summer shandy D A stronger braver man I?ll be A For thee and me and . . . D Well I?ll swim the french broad river G And become a little thinner D When I lay me down to dinner A At Dixie?s house to dine. D Well I?ll order in the brandy G And wine and summer shandy D A stronger braver man I?ll be A D For thee and me mine.
