​Swanee

This song is by Rufus Wainwright and appears on the live album Rufus Does Judy At Carnegie Hall (2007) and on the box set House of Rufus (2011).

Swanee, how I loves ya, how I loves ya
My dear old Swanee
I'd give the world to be among the folks in
D-I-X-I-E-ven though my mammy's
Waiting for me, praying for me
Down by the Swanee
The folks up north will see me no more
When I get to that Swanee shore

Swanee, Swanee
I'm coming back to Swanee
Mammy, mammy
I love the old folks at home

I loves ya Swanee
How I loves ya, how I loves ya
My dear old Swanee
I'd give the world if I could only be
Sittin' on my mammy's knee
I love the old folks, I love the young folks
*Incomprehensible* ... mammy, mammy
My dear old mammy
The folks up north will see me no more
When I get to that Swanee shore
