Old bro - ther how my heart grows wea - ry, far from the old folks at home.

2. All up and down the whole creation,


Sadly I roam,
Still longing for the old plantation,
And for the old folks at home.

3. All round the little farm I wandered,


When I was young.
Then many happy days I squandered,
Many the songs I sing.

4. One little hut among the bushes,


One that I love.
Still sadly to my memory rushes,
No matter where I rove.

5. Where will I see the bees a-humming,


All round the comb ?
When will I hear the banjos strumming
Down in my good old home ?
