Swanee lyrics

Swanee lyrics — €sung in The Jolson StoryThe Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and more

I’ve been away from you along time
I never thought I’d miss — €˜ya so
Somehow I feel, your love is real
Near you I wanna be.

The Birds are singing it is songtime
The banjos strumming soft and low
I know that you yearn for me to 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 though my mammy’s waiting for me,
praying for me down by the swanne.
The folks up north will see me no more when I get to that swanee shore

[whistles like a bird]

I love the old folks at home
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 though 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 that swanee shore.
