"Dinah" by Harry Akst, Sam Lewis and Joe Young
[G7]proudest one beneath the Dixie [C7]sun,
[F]News is spreadin' [Am]'bout
[Dm]church bells ringin'
[G7]Here's the song my [C7]heart
[F]Dinah, is there any one finer,
In the state of Caro[C7]lina,
If there is and you [F]know 'er,[Cdim][C7]show
'er to me?
[F]Dinah, with her Dixie eyes blazin'
How I love to sit and [C7]gaze in
To the eyes of Dinah [F]Lee,
[Dm]Ev'ry night [Aaug]why
do I [Dm7]shake with fright,
[Dm6]Change her mind about [C7]me.
[F]Dinah, if she wandered to China
I would hop an ocean [C7]liner,
Just to be with Dinah [F]Lee!
[F]Some designer [C7]modeled
[G7]be the one who made the golden [C7]sun,
[F]Heaven bless her, [Am]she
said [F7]"Yes, Sir",
[Dm]long I'm prayin'
[G7]Even in my [C7]dreams
