Swanee
I've been away from you a long time
I never thought I'd miss you so
Somehow I feel your love is real
Near you I long to be

The birds are singin', it is song time
The banjo's strummin' soft and low
I know that you yearn for me too
Swanee, you're calling me

Swanee, how I love ya, how I love ya
My dear old Swanee
I'd give the world to be among the folks in
D-I-X-I-E-ven now my
Mammy's waitin' for me, prayin' for me
Down by the Swanee
The folks up north won't see me no more
When I go to that Swanee shore

Swanee, Swanee, I am goin' back to Swanee
Swanee, Swanee, I love the old folks at home

Music by:

George Gerswhin
