Lyrics
I've been away from you a long time
I never thought I'd missed you so
Somehow I feel
You love is real
Near you I long towanna be

The birds are singin', it is song time
The banjos strummin' soft and low
I know that you
Yearn for me too
Swanee ! You're calling me !

[Chorus]
Swanee !
How I love you, how I love !
My dear ol' Swanee
I'd give the world to be
Among the folks in
D-I-X-I-E-ven no[w]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 !

[Chorus]

Swanee, Swanee, I am coming back to Swanee !
Mammy, Mammy, I love the old folks at home !

[Chorus]
