Way down upon the Swanee river

Far far away

Swanee how I love you how I love you

My dear old Swanee

I'd give the world to be among the folks of D-I-X

I even know 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 my Swanee shore



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
