LYRIC

Dinah
Is there anyone finer
In the state of Carolina?
If there is and you know her
Show her!

Dinah
With her Dixie eyes blazin'
How I love to sit and gaze in
To the eyes of Dinah Lee!

Yet, every night
My, how I shake with fright
Because my Dinah might
Change her mind about me!

But if Dinah
Ever wandered to China
I would hop an ocean liner
Just to be with Dinah Lee!

Dinah
Is there anyone finer
In the state of Carolina?
If there is and you know her
Show her!

Dinah
With her Dixie eyes blazin'
How I love to sit and gaze in
To the eyes of Dinah Lee!

Yet, every night
My, how I shake with fright
Because my Dinah might
Change her mind about me!

But if Dinah
Ever wandered to China
I would hop an ocean!
Just to be with Dinah Lee!

About "Dinah"

Although Louis never had any romantic interactions with a girl named Dinah, this song conveys his love for the girl he never had.
Considered a classic among many vintage jazz fans, Dinah shows an amazing bop pattern with the elegance of Louis' vocals rising above the smooth saxophone.
Overall, while this song is non-fiction, it displays Louis' beautiful emotions through his recent divorce with Daisy Parker
