DINAH ~ETHEL WATERS and the PLANTATION ORCHESTRA (1926)

Carolina
Gave me Dinah;
I'm the proudest one
Beneath the Dixie sun.


News is spreadin'
'Bout our weddin';
I hear church bells ringin',
Here's the song my heart keeps singin':


Dinah,
Is there anyone finer
In the state of Carolina?
If there is and you know her,
Show her!


Dinah,
With her Dixie eyes blazin',
How I love to sit and gaze in
To the eyes of Dinah Lee!


Yet, every night,
My, how I shake with fright,
Because my Dinah might,
Change her mind about me!


But if Dinah,
Ever wandered to China,
I would hop an ocean liner!,
Just to be with Dinah Lee!
