The Dixieland Band - Kay Starr

Did you ever hear the story of the Dixieland Band

Let me tell you brother and the music was grand

They had a piano and a clarinet


The only thing they needed was a second cornet


And that's what lead to the ruin

The ruin of the Dixieland Band


When the folks would holler for the Maple Leaf Rag

They would get to swinging but the trumpet would drag


They had to keep him 'cause he played so sweet

But they needed someone who could give them a beat


Someone who's born with the rhythm

The rhythm of the Dixieland Band

He'd play so sweetly 'stead o' playing


He'd play so sweetly they'd be saying


Sure enough he got them so they couldn't play right

Finally he digged them on a Saturday night


He hit a note that was off the chord

Apoplexy got them and they went to the Lord

And that is the beautiful story

The story of the Dixieland Band


Now they're up in heaven and they're happy at last

'Cause they found a trumpet man who really can blast

The way he swings them is an awful shame

He can really do it

Gabriel is his name


Now folks here is a sample

Listen to the Dixieland Band


And folks that was a sample

That was love the Dixieland Band
