The Daily Frail Episode 19

Dear Old Dad and When The Roses Bloom In Dixieland.

When The Roses Bloom In Dixieland

CHORUS
     
     G
     When the roses bloom in Dixieland
          D              G
     I am coming home to you
     G
     When the band is playing music grand
            A                    D
     To the sweetest girl I ever knew
     D                 G 
     I am saving up my money
    C                              G/D 
    To buy a little cabin home for two
     G                                       
     When the roses bloom in Dixieland
          D              G
     I am coming home to you


I just got a letter from the sunny south
From my girl in Tennessee
She said she loved me like she used to do
And was waiting there for me
I answered back her letter
Though I am far away
When the roses bloom in Dixieland
I am coming home to stay

CHORUS
     
When I left my honey at the railroad train
I said, honey, wait for me
I'm going to make a lot of money up north
Then it's me for old Tennessee
I am saving up my money
To buy a little cabin home for two
When the roses bloom in Dixieland
I am coming home to you

Chorus
