AN OLD FAVORITE
OLD FOLKS AT HOME )\
By Stephen Collint Tostet
NO other American aong- writer has left no greet
an Impression upon American life as Stephen Collins
Poster, whose songs, "Old Koike at Home," "My Old
Kentucky Home," "Massa's In the Cold, Cold Ground,"
"Old Black Joe," etc., are world renowned. Foster
was born in Pittsburgh, Pa., in 18? and died in New
York In 186*. During the early part of his life he was
in fairly good clrcumetnncea, his songs netting him an
income, but he later fell Into Irregular habits Und died
penniless. Besides his negro melodies Foster wrote
others that gained Immense popularity.
WAY down upon de Swanee Rlbber,
Far, far away,
Dore's wha my heart la turnlug ebber,
Dere's wha de old folks stay.
All up and. down de whole creation ,
Sadly I roam, i
Still longing for de old plantation, '. 1
Aud for de old folks at home.
AU de world am sad and dreary,
Ebery where 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 sougs I sung.
When I was playing whl my brudder
Happy was I;
Oh, take me to my kind old madder!
Dcre let me live and diot
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-humiulng
All round de comb?
When will 1 hear de banjo tummlng,
Down in my good old home?
AU de world am sad and dreory,
Ebery where I roam;
Oh, darkeys, how my heart grows weary,
Far from de old-folks at home!
