I've been waiting oh, how I've been waiting for the day, dear. I've been longing for I knew that you would come my way dear. I have prayed that some day I would open my eyes and see. An angel that the Southland sent to me. Now you're here I cannot believe you are real But when I look in your eyes I know that you are my Ideal. Second Verse
I've been scheming oh, how I've been scheming for the time, dear. I've been dreaming of the day that I could make my mine, dear. I have heard of angles and the wonderful things they do. I never met one dear 'till I met you. From the moment that you first came from the South dear. Why I could tell by your wond'rous eyes that you must be sincere. Chorus
There's just a little touch of Dixie in your eyes I know you were born underneath those Southern skies. You have that Southern style Oh I love your Southern smile And it's plain to see You have the Southern hospitality Your voice is like a Carolina breeze It sounds just like the birdies in the trees. You are a wonderful prize The thing that makes it seem like Paradise, Is that little touch of Dixie in your eyes. CLICK HERE TO PLAY THIS SONG
