    Lyrics

    Way down upon the Swanee River,
    Far, far away
    That's where my heart is yearning ever,
    Home where the old folks stay

    Way down upon the Swanee River,
    Far, far away-hey
    Whoa, that's where my heart is yearning ever,
    Home where the old folks stay

    All up and down the whole creation,
    Sadly I roam
    I'm a still a-longin' for the old plantation,
    Oh, for the old folks at home

    Ah-oh-oh!

    Oh, my my!

    Well, way down upon the Swanee River,
    Far, far away-hey.
    Whoa, that's where my heart is yearning ever,
    Home where the old folks stay.

    All up and down the whole creation,
    Sadly I roam.
    I'm still a-longin' for the old plantation,
    And for the old folks at home.

    All the world is sad and dreary,
    Ev'rywhere I roam
    Oh, darkies, how my heart grows weary,
    Far from the old folks at home
    Far from the old folks at home
    Far from the old folks at home
    Far from the old folks at home
