George Gershwin – Swanee lyrics

Intro 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:
Swanee,
How 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
Waitin' 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, Swanee, I am goin' back to Swanee!
Swanee, Swanee, I love the old folks at home!

(Repeat chorus)
