verse 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
banjos strummin' soft and low I.
know that you yearn for me too Swanee.
You're, calling me Chorus.

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
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 Bridge!

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