Dixie 
(Trad / Daniel Decatur Emmett)


"Dixie", also known as "I Wish I Was in Dixie", "Dixie's Land", and other 
titles, is a popular American song. It is one of the most distinctively 
American musical products of the 19th century, and probably the best-known 
song to have come out of blackface minstrelsy. Although not a folk song at 
its creation, "Dixie" has since entered the American folk vernacular. The 
song likely cemented the word "Dixie" in the American vocabulary as a 
toponym for the Southern United States.
