IRVING BERLIN lyrics - There Are Two Eyes In Dixie

IRVING BERLIN
"There Are Two Eyes In Dixie"

[1st verse:]
When I left the old folks
Down in Dixieland
From that very moment
I could understand
Why they put two I's in Dixie
When they spell that word
Here's the simple reason
It's the best you've ever heard

[Refrain:]
There are two I's in Dixie
D-I-X-I-E
Two eyes in Dixie
Always watching me

And while I'm straying
By day and night
They keep on saying
"Turn to the right"

Makes no diff'rence where I wander
Or where I happen to be

I simply can't go wrong
Because the whole day long
There are two eyes in Dixie watching me

[2nd verse:]
Ev'ry night you'll find me
With a pen in hand
Writing them a letter
Down in Dixieland
I can see two eyes in Dixie
Reading what I write
And I ask their blessing
When I say my pray'rs each night
