Old Folks at Home Lyrics

1929 American musical film
The Hollywood Revue of 1929 - Old Folks at Home Lyrics

Written by Stephen Foster in 1851.

Way down upon de Swanee Ribber,
Far, far away,
Dere's wha my heart is turning ebber,
Dere's wha de old folks stay.

All up and down de whole creation
Sadly I roam,
Still longing for de old plantation,
And for de old folks at home.

All de world am sad and dreary,
Eb-rywhere I roam;
Oh, darkeys, how my heart grows weary,
Far from de old folks at home!

All round de little farm I wandered
When I was young,
Den many happy days I squandered,
Many de songs I sung.
When I was playing wid my brudder
Happy was I;
Oh, take me to my kind old mudder!
Dere let me live and die.

One little hut among de bushes,
One dat I love
Still sadly to my memory rushes,
No matter where I rove.
When will I see de bees a-humming
All round de comb?
When will I hear de banjo strumming,
Down in my good old home?

The Hollywood Revue of 1929 Lyrics

Got a Feeling for You
Old Folks at Home
Old Black Joe
Your Mother and Mine
You Were Meant for Me
Nobody But You
For I'm the Queen
Singin' in the Rain
