Evening Bells Are Ringing

Moonlight shinning over Dixie
To my heart will ever bring
Dreams of snowy fields of cotton
Everywhere the darkies sing

   In the evening in the moonlight
   In dear old Tennessee
   And the evening bells are ringing
   Across the hills so tenderly

Moonlight makes me sigh for you dear
Makes me long to hold your hand
I know I’m missing hugs and kisses
Far away from Dixieland

My darling come come I am waiting
Come let me hold you very near
We’ll build a bower among the flowers
Growing down in Dixieland
