Swanee Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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!
Verse 2
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!
Verse 3
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-E ven now my Mammy's waiting for me,
Praying for me
Down by the Swanee
Verse 4
The folks up north will see me no more
When I go to the Swanee Shore!
Verse 5
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-E ven now my Mammy's waiting for me,
Praying for me
Down by the Swanee
Verse 6
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!
Verse 7
Swanee, Swanee, I am coming back to Swanee!
Mammy, Mammy, I love the old folks at home!
