Tuesdays Tunes

 Aretha Franklin 

Rock-A-Bye Your Baby With A Dixie Melody”

Rock-a-bye your baby with a Dixie melody.
When you croon, croon a tune from the heart of Dixie.
Just place my cradle, mammy mine,
Right on the Mason Dixon line,
And swing it from Virginia
To Tennessee with all the love that’s in ya.

Weep no more, my lady.

Sing that song again for me.
Soft and low, just as though
You had me on your knee.

A million baby kisses I’d deliver,
If you would only sing that Swanee River.
Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye baby with a Dixie melody

You left us too soon, but your music lives on in our souls
Well,  that’s all the news from the south,
Happy” farming” to all the farm girl sisters out there.
See you next time down on the farm.
