There'll be happy days in Dixie,
Happy days and nights!
All our boys are back once more,
Celebrating 'cause they've won the war!

Soon again you'll hear them singing,
Round that cabin door,
Old Alexander's got his ragtime band,
Where it belongs, in dear old Dixieland!

There'll be happy days in Dixie,
Dixie will be Dixie once more!
