Rock-a-bye your baby with a Dixie melody lyrics — €“ written by Jean Schwartz, lyrics by Sam M. Lewis and Joe Young

Also performed by Judy Garland and Jerry Lewis, who adopted it as his personal theme song

Rock-a-bye your baby with a Dixie melody.
When you croon, croon a tune
From the heart of Dixie.
Hang that cradle mammy mine
Right on that Mason-Dixon line
And swing it from Virginia
To Tennessee with all the soul that’s in ya.

Weep no more my lady.
Mammy sing it again for me.
And old black Joe
Just as though
You had me on your knee.
A million baby kisses I’ll deliver
If you will only sing the Swanee River.
Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye baby with a Dixie melody.

Rock-a-bye,
Hush-a-bye
With a Dixie melody.
When you croon, croon a tune
from the heart of Dixie
Hang that cradle mammy mine
Right on that Mason-Dixon line
And swing it from Virginia
To Tennessee with all the soul that’s in ya.

Mammy, mammy listen to what they’re playing.
They’re playing Weep No More My Lady.
Sing it for me.
And old black Joe
Just as though
You had me on your knee.
A thousand baby kisses I’ll deliver
If you will only sing that Swanee River.
Rock-a-bye your rock-a-bye baby with a Dixie melody!
