the battle song of the Confederate States. It was written in 1859 in New York as Dixie's Land by Daniel Emmett, who was later upset that it became the 'Confederate national anthem'. Dixie was, however, a favourite song of Abraham Lincoln. It begins:
I wish I was in the land of cotton,Old times there are not forgotten;Look away, look away, look away,Dixie land!
