Verse:
Ban -jo Land, land of har -mo -ny, Ban -jo Land, land of mel -o -dy,
When the cot -ton pick -ing's o'er, Mu -sic fills the air.
Ban -jo Land, home of fun -ny tunes, Ban -jo Land, land of sun -ny tunes,
When the moon is in the sky, Ban -jos ev -'ry where.
 
Chorus:
Down In Ban -jo Land down In Ban -jo Land, Ev -'ry bod -y's got a ban -jo in his hand.
Mel -o -dies g -lore, 'Round the cab -in door,
South -ern folks pick -in' ban -jo strokes, Mu -sic some -thing grand.
Mam -my, she's a hum -min', Boys are all a strum -min', In the ev -'ning by the moon -light,
In Ban -jo Land.
