Old Folks At Home (Swanee River) chords
Stephen Foster (as sung by Paul Robeson)

C F Way down upon the Swanee River,
C GFar, far away
C FThat's where my heart is turning ever
C G CThat's where the old folks stay
FAll up and down the whole creation,
C GSadly I roam
C F Still longing for the old plantation
C G CAnd for the old folks at home
G C F C GAll the world is sad and dreary, everywhere I roam
C FOh, Lordy, how my heart grows weary,
C G Cfar from the old folks at home
C FAll 'round the little farm I wandered,
C GWhen I was young
C FThen many happy days I squandered,
C G CMany the songs I sung
C FWhen I was playing with my brother,
C GHappy was I
C FOh, take me to my kind old mother,
C G CThere let me live and die
G C F C GAll the world is sad and dreary, everywhere I roam
C FOh, Lordy, how my heart grows weary,
C G Cfar from the old folks at home
C FOne little hut among the bushes,
C GOne that I love
C FStill sadly to my mem'ry rushes,
C G CNo matter where I rove
C FWhen shall I see the bees a humming,
C GAll 'round the comb
C FWhen shall I hear the banjo strumming,
C G CDown by my good old home
G C F C GAll the world is sad and dreary, everywhere I roam
C FOh, Lordy, how my heart grows weary,
C G Cfar from the old folks at home
