Lyrics verse 1:
MAMMY MINE,
YOUR LITTLE ROLLING STONE
THAT ROLLED AWAY,
STROLLED AWAY.
MAMMY MINE,
YOUR ROLLING STONE
IS ROLLING HOME TODAY,
THERE TO STAY.
JUST TO SEE YOUR SMILING FACE,
SMILE A WELCOME SIGN.
WHEN I'M IN
YOUR FOND EMBRACE,
LISTEN, MAMMY MINE:

Chorus:
ROCK-A-BYE YOUR BABY
WITH A DIXIE MELODY.
WHEN YOU CROON,
CROON A TUNE
FROM THE HEART OF DIXIE.
JUST HANG MY CRADLE,
MAMMY MINE,
RIGHT ON
THAT MASON-DIXON LINE,
AND SWING IT
FROM VIRGINIA
TO TENNESSEE
WITH ALL THE LOVE
THAT'S IN YA.
WEEP NO MORE,
MY LADY,
SING THAT SONG
AGAIN FOR ME
AND OLD BLACK JOE,
JUST AS THOUGH
YOU HAD ME
ON YOUR KNEE.
A MILLION BABY KISSES
I'LL DELIVER
THE MINUTE THAT YOU SING
THAT SWANEE RIVER.
ROCK-A-BYE
YOUR ROCKABYE BABY
WITH A DIXIE MELODY.

verse 2:
ANY TIME
I HEAR A MAMMY
SING HER BABE TO SLEEP
SLUMBER DEEP.
THAT'S THE TIME
THE SHADOWS AROUND MY HEART
BEGIN TO CREEP,
AND I WEEP.
WONDER WHY
I WENT AWAY,
WHAT A FOOL I'VE BEEN,
TAKE ME BACK
TO YESTERDAY,
IN YOUR ARMS AGAIN.

Chorus:
ROCK-A-BYE YOUR BABY
WITH A DIXIE MELODY.
WHEN YOU CROON,
CROON A TUNE
FROM THE HEART OF DIXIE.
JUST HANG MY CRADLE,
MAMMY MINE,
RIGHT ON
THAT MASON-DIXON LINE,
AND SWING IT
FROM VIRGINIA
TO TENNESSEE
WITH ALL THE LOVE
THAT'S IN YA.
WEEP NO MORE,
MY LADY,
SING THAT SONG
AGAIN FOR ME
AND OLD BLACK JOE,
JUST AS THOUGH
YOU HAD ME
ON YOUR KNEE.
A MILLION BABY KISSES
I'LL DELIVER
THE MINUTE
THAT YOU SING
THAT SWANEE RIVER.
ROCK-A-BYE
YOUR ROCKABYE BABY
WITH A DIXIE MELODY.
