I know where I'm going and I'm on my way,
Got myself a ticket and I left today,
Now I'm on the train, going back again,
Going back to Dixie and the land of Cotton:
Got so tired waiting for the train to start,
Seemed as if we never, never would depart,
Shovel in the coal, let the engine roll
Let me watch the mile stones pass.
One mile, two miles,
This speedy travel sure is class.
Hear the choo, choo, choo, choo, choo, choo, choo,
Hear the toot, toot, toot, toot, toot, toot, toot,
I'm going, Yes,I'm going to my honey, with heart so true,
Hear the clack, clickety clack, clickety clack, clickety clack,
Hear the rattle, rattle, rattle on the railroad track,
Hear the whistle! Hear the bell!
See the telegraph poles, Going by like Well!
I guess I'll soon be back in Dixie land.
Sixty miles an hour on a choo, choo train,
Gee!I'm mighty glad I'm going back again,
Give her lots of steam,Mister while I dream,
'Bout the folks in Dixie who are ne'er forgotten,
Mammy will be waiting by the cabin door,
Sally Green will say she's glad I'm back once more,
Mister stand aside, let me watch her glide,
Mile a minute if she can.
Oh! land, that's grand,
I'm gliding back to Dixieland.
