Old Folks at Home (Swanee River, Swanee Ribber, Suwannee)

Way down upon de Swanee Ribber,
Far, far away,
Dere's wha my heart is turning ebber,
Dere's wha de old folks stay.
All up and down de whole creation
Sadly I roam,
Still longing for de old plantation,
And for de old folks at home.
 
All the world am sad and dreary,
Everywhere I roam;
Oh, darkeys, how my heart grows weary,
Far from de old folks at home!
 
All round de little farm I wandered
When I was young,
Den many happy days I squandered,
Many de songs I sung.
When I was playing wid my brudder
Happy was I;
Oh, take me to my kind old mudder!
Dere let me live and die.
 
All the world am sad and dreary,
Everywhere I roam;
Oh, darkeys, how my heart grows weary,
Far from de old folks at home!
 
One little hut among de bushes,
One dat I love
Still sadly to my memory rushes,
No matter where I rove.
When will I see de bees a-humming
All round de comb?
When will I hear de banjo strumming,
Down in my good old home?
 
All the world am sad and dreary,
Everywhere I roam;
Oh, darkeys, how my heart grows weary,
Far from de old folks at home
 
Oh, darkeys, how my heart grows weary,
Far from de old folks at home
 
Thanks!
