"Swanee River" as written by and Stephen Collins Foster....
Way down upon the Swanee River,
Far, far away

There's where my heart is turning ever,
There's where the old folks stay.

All up and down the whole creation,
Sadly I roam. (feeling blue)

Still a-longin' for the old plantation,
And for the old folks at home.

All the world is sad and dreary,
Ev'rywhere I roam.

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

(oh I remember when)
All around the little farm I wander
When I was young
Then many happy days I sqaundered
Many songs I song

All the world is sad and dreary,
Ev'rywhere I roam.

Oh, how my heavy heart is weary,
All the world is sad and dready
Far from the old folks at home
The Swanee River is calling me home
