Ole Miss Song Banned

Patsy Brumfield, Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal, November 10, 2009

Continued chants “The South Shall Rise Again” today cost Ole Miss fans a favorite game tune, “From Dixie With Love.”

Chancellor Dan Jones banned the playing of the pep song medley because fans refused to stop the chant.

The song is a blend of “Dixie,” “All My Trials” and the “Battle Hymn of the Republic” written by an assistant band director in the mid-1970s apparently as a way to get away from just “Dixie,” which had become offensive to many peoploe [sic] in the post Civil Rights era.
