Paroles Swanee

Le - modifié le - Par .

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 singing, it is song time
The banjos strummin' soft and low
I know that you
Yearn for me too
Swanee, you're calling me

Swanee
How I love you, how I love you
My dear old Swanee!
I'd give the world to be among the folks in
D-I-X-I
Even now my mammy's waiting for me
Praying 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'm coming back to Swanee
Mammy, mammy
I love the old folks at home!

Swanee!
How I love you, how I love you
My dear old Swanee!
I'd give the world to be among the folks in
D-I-X-I
Even now my mammy's waiting for me
Praying for me, down by the Swanee

The folks up north will see me no more
When I go to the Swanee shore!
