Brenda Lee – Swanee River Rock lyrics

Do you know way down way down upon the Swanee
Talkin' about the river you know it's so far yes it's so far away
Do you know that's where my heart is a turning
Oh yeah and that's where that's where the old folks stay
All the world is sad and lonely yeah everywhere I roam
I keep a telling you darling how my heart is so sad and lonely
Because I'm so far so far from my folks back home
[ sax ]
All the world is sad and lonely...
Far from my folks back home far from my folks back home
