Lyrics
Swanee
How I love ya, how I love ya
My dear old Swanee
I’d give the world to be
Among my folks in
D-I-X-I-E-ven now my  (Swanee)
People are
Waitin’ for me, prayin’ for me
Down by the Swanee
The folks up north  (north)
Will see me no more
When I get to that Swanee shore

Oh, Swanee
How I love ya, how I love ya
My dear old Swanee
I’d give the world if I could only be
Among my folks in
D-I-X-I-E-ven now my  (Swanee)
People are
Waitin’ for me, prayin’ for me
Down by the Swanee
The folks up north  (north)
Will never  (will)
Just see me no more
When I get to that Swanee  (Swanee)
Well, let me get through that Swanee  (Swanee)
When I cross that Swanee shore

Català – Swanee
Swanee
Com t’estimo, com t’estimo
El meu vell i estimat Swanee
Donaria el món per estar
Entre els meus a
D-I-X-I-E, fins i tot, ara la meva  (Swanee)
Gent està
Esperant-me, pregant per mi
Al costat del Swanee
La gent del nord  (nord)
No em veurà més
Quan arribi a la vora del Swanee

Oh, Swanee
Com t’estimo, com t’estimo
El meu vell i estimat Swanee
Donaria el món si pogués, tan sols, ser
Entre els meus a
D-I-X-I-E, fins i tot, ara la meva  (Swanee)
Gent està
Esperant-me, pregant per mi
Al costat del Swanee
La gent del nord  (nord)
Mai més  (mai)
Simplement, no em veurà més
Quan arribi al Swanee  (Swanee)
Bé, deixa’m travessar el Swanee  (Swanee)
En creuar la riba del Swanee
