Down Yonder
 
 

Railroad train, railroad train, hurry some more
Put a little steam on just like never before
Hustle on, bustle on, I've got the blues
Yearning for my Swanee shore, brother if you only knew
You'd want to hurry up too

Down yonder someone beckons to me
Down yonder somone reckons on me
I seem to see a race in memory
Between the Natchez and the Robert E. Lee
Swanee shore, I miss you more and more
Every day, my mammy land, you're simply grand

Down yonder when the folks get the news
Don't wonder at the hullabaloos
There's daddy and mammy, there's Ephraim and Sammy
Waiting down yonder for me

Summer night, fields of white, bright cotton moon
My, but I feel glad, I'm gonna see you all soon
'Lasses cakes, mammy bakes, I taste them now
I can hear the darkies croon
I'll see my sweetie once more
There's lots of kissing in store

Down yonder someone beckons to me
Down yonder somone reckons on me
I seem to see a race in memory
Between the Natchez and the Robert E. Lee
Swanee shore, I miss you more and more
Every day, my mammy land, you're simply grand

Down yonder when the folks get the news
Don't wonder at the hullabaloos
There's daddy and mammy, there's Ephraim and Sammy
Waiting down yonder for me

Lyrics by L. Wolfe Gilbert.
Recorded by Del Wood; many others, often as an instrumental.

California Here I Come
 
 

When the wintry winds starts blowing
And the snow is starting in the fall
Then my eyes went westward knowing
That's the place that I love best of all
California I've been blue
Since I've been away from you
I can't wait 'till I get blowing
Even now I'm starting in a call

California, Here I Come
Right back where I started from
Where bowers of flowers
Bloom in the spring
Each morning at dawning
Birdies sing at everything
A sunkissed miss said, "Don't be late!"
That's why I can hardly wait
Open up that golden gate
California, Here I Come

California, Here I Come (yeaaaaaah!)
Right back where I started from
Where bowers of flowers
Bloom in the spring
Each morning at dawning
Birdies sing at everything
A sunkissed miss said, "Don't be late!"
That's why I can hardly wait (come on!)
Open up (open up! open up!) that golden gate
California, Here I Come

Lyrics by Al Jolson, Bud DeSylva, and Joseph Meyer.
