1Way down upon de Swanee ribber,
2Far, far away,
3Dere's wha my heart is turning ebber,
4Dere's wha de old folks stay.
5All up and down de whole creation,
6Sadly I roam,
7Still longing for de old plantation,
8And for de old folks at home.
9[Chorus] All de world am sad and dreary,
10Ebry where I roam,
11Oh! darkeys how my heart grows weary,
12Far from de old folks at home.
13[Solo] All round de little farm I wandered
14When I was young,
15Den many happy days I squandered,
16Many de songs I sung.
17When I was playing wid my brudder
18Happy was I --.
19Oh! take me to my kind old mudder,
20Dere let me live and die.
21[Chorus] All de world am sad and dreary,
22Ebry where I roam,
23Oh! darkeys how my heart grows weary,
24Far from de old folks at home.
25One little hut among de bushes,
26One dat I love,
27Still sadly to my mem'ry rushes,
28No matter where I rove
29When will I see de bees a humming
30All round de comb?
31When will I hear de banjo tumming
32Down in my good old home?
33[Chorus] All de world am sad and dreary,
34Ebry where I roam,
35Oh! darkeys how my heart grows weary,
36Far from de old folks at home.
