Stephen C. Foster Away Poems

    And ev'ning comes at last;
    It brings me a dream of a once happy day,
    Of merry forms I've seen

    My wife is a most knowing woman,
    She always is finding me out,
    She never will hear explanations
    But instantly puts me to rout,

    1 The sun shines bright in the old Kentucky home,
    2 'Tis summer, the darkies are gay,

    3 Gone from the earth to a better land I know,

    1 Way down upon de Swanee ribber,
    2 Far, far away,
    3 Dere's wha my heart is turning ebber,
    4 Dere's wha de old folks stay.
