Mort Dixon

Mort Dixon (born on March 2, 1892 in New York City, New York, died March 23, 1956 Bronxville, New YorK) was an American lyricist. Dixon began writing songs in the early 1920s, and was active into the 1930s. His chief composer collaborators were Ray Henderson, Harry Warren (2), Harry Woods (2) and Allie Wrubel. Dixon wrote lyrics to such songs as "Bye Bye Blackbird", "You're My Everything", "That Old Gang of Mine", "If I Had a Girl Like You", "Just Like a Butterfly that’s Caught in the Rain", "Marching Along Together" and "The Lady in Red", just to mention a few.

He never collaborated with Willie Dixon. "M. Dixon" credits for "I Just Wanna Make Love To You" are probably incorrect credits for Marie Dixon.
