lyrics

Way down upon the Suwannee River,
Far, far away
That is where my heart is turning ever
That's where the old folks stay

All the world is sad and dreary everywhere I roam
Oh lordy, how my heart grows weary
Far from the old folks at home

All around the little farm I wandered,
When I was young
Then many happy days I squandered,
Many the songs I sung
When I was playing with my brother,
Happy was I
Oh, take me to my kind old mother,
There let me live and die


All the world is sad and dreary everywhere I roam
Oh lordy, how my heart grows weary
Far from the old folks at home

Oh lordy, how my heart grows weary
Far from the old folks at home
