1st Verse
C 'Way down upon the F Swanee River, C far, far a- G7 way
C That's where my heart is F turning ever, C that's where the G7 old folks C stay
C All up and down the F whole creation, C sadly I G7 roam
C Still longing for the F old plantation, C and for the G7 old folks at C home
Chorus
G7 All the world is C sad and dreary, F everywhere I C roam G7
C Oh! Lordy, how my F heart grows weary, C far from the G7 old folks at C home
2nd Verse
C All 'round the little F farm I wandered, C when I was G7 young
C Then many happy F days I squandered, C many a G7 song I C sung
C When I was playing F with my brother, C happy was G7 I
C Oh! take me to my F kind old mother, C there let me G7 live and C die   (Chorus)
3rd Verse
C One little hut a- F mong the bushes, C one that I G7 love
C Still sadly to my F mem'ry rushes, C no matter G7 where I C rove
C When will I see the F bees a-humming C all a- C round the G7 comb?
C When will I hear the F banjo strummin' C down in my G7 good old C home?   (Chorus)
