You coax the blues right out of the horn, Mame,
You charm the husk right off of the corn Mame,
You've got the ban -joes strum -min' and plunk -in' out a tune to beat the band,
The whole plan -ta -tion's hum -min' since you brought Dix -ie back to Dix -ie -land.
You make the cot -ton eas -y to pick, Mame,
You give my old mint ju -lep a kick Mame,
You make the old mag -no -lia tree blos -som at the men -tion of your name,
You've made us feel a -live a -gain, You've giv -en us the drive a -gain,
To make the South re -vive a -gain Mame.
