[Verse 1]
Mammy, Mammy, I'm hurrying home,
I'm tired of roaming Tired of being alone,
Mammy, Mammy, Won't you comfort me?
Take me in your arms again,
That's where I want to be.

Carolina Mammy I'm longin' for you
Carolina Mammy I'm lonesome and blue,
I'll tell you Mammy, I've found it's true,
That there's nobody in this wide, wide, world,
That loves me like you do,

In that Dixie garden, I'm longin' to be,
Where I spent my childhood,
Right there on your knee,
So prepare for my return,
Gee! it's great to live and learn,
There's nobody finer than my Carolina Mammy.

[Verse 2]
Mammy, Mammy, Remember the time,
When I was a baby Couldn't toddle or climb,
Mammy, Mammy, How you loved me then,
Something tells me you still care,
You'll welcome me again.
