Where blue grass and the thoroughbreds abound
And Old Kentucky friendship is still found
Where King Horse is still supreme
And the sporting life is keen
The name of Dixiana is renowned.
Here Domino was bred whose classic name
Stands foremost in Kentucky’s racing game
May the day be drawing near
When his gallant equine peer
Will yet enhance the Dixiana fame.
To Mr. and Mrs. Fisher

Spring time sun and things a growin’
Steeds like Pegasus, manes flowin’
Sun a glintin’ cross the Elkhorn,
Makes the grim old world seem newborn.
God above and ‘neath this roof tree,
Hearts the noblest that may be
From our souls we sing “Hosanna”
Hail to thee fair Dixiana!

Derby Day at Dixiana
Lovely party at the manor
Rainy weather, fine trip
Played a little secret tip
Got wet, lost the bet
Haven’t won a Derby Yet
Judging from my heavy losses
I’m still following these horses
Some day tho’, or I’m a sinner
I’ll come down and pick a winner
And the Dixiana host
Will send that winner to the post

There’s nothing like an evening on the Dixiana Lawn
When you’re sippin’ on a julep and a skunk comes along
In case you are from the far away city
The skunk I mean is a black & white kitty
So I grab up my gun and rush out for the kill
But my sweet little wife puts all my efforts to nil.
