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 even know my
Mammy's waitin' for me prayin' for me
Down by the Swanee

The folks up North will see me no more
When I go to the Swanee shore.
Swanee, Swanee I am coming back to Swanee.
Mammy, Mammy, I love the old folks at home.

I love ya!
Swanne, how i love ya, how i love ya.
My dear old swanne
I'd give the world if i could only be,
Sittin' on my mammy's knee.
I love the old folks,
I love the young folks.

Oh! my honey you'll love them all in allabamy,
Mammy! mammy,
My dear old mammy.
Your wondering child, will wonder no more.
When i get to that.
Swanne!-shore!
