Way Down Upon the Swanee River

C Way G7 down upon the Am Swanee F River, C far, far a- G7 way, C that’s G7 where my heart is Am turning F ever, C that’s where the G7 old folks C stay. C All G7 up and down the Am whole cre- F ation, C sadly I G7 roam, C still G7 longing for the Am old plan- F tation C and for the G7 old folks at C home. G7 All the world is C sad and dreary F everywhere I G7 roam. C Oh, G7 how my heart Am grows F weary, C Far from the G7 old folks at C home.

All ’round the little farm I wandered, When I was young Then many happy days I squandered, Many the songs I sung When I was playing with my brother, Happy was I Oh, take me to my kind old mother, There let me live and die All the world is sad and dreary everywhere I roam Oh Lordy, how my heart grows weary Far from the old folks at home

3. One little hut among the bushes, One that I love Still sadly to my mem’ry rushes, No matter where I rove When shall I see the bees a humming, All ’round the comb When shall I hear the banjo strumming, Down by my good old home All the world is sad and dreary everywhere I roam Oh Lordy, how my heart grows weary Far from the old folks at home.
