MARIA TĂNASE – CÂNTEC DE NUNTĂ DIN FĂGĂRAŞ Iese muma miresii, In mijlocul curtii, Și se roagă Soarelui: Ține soare ziua mare C-am o fată călătoare, Peste munți, la alte curți, La părinți necunoscuți, La surori fără durori, Și la frați ne întreb – SoundCloud

This was written and composed by Stephen Foster in 1851. It is the official Florida State Song.
The first two verses are performed here. Soloist is Grant Williams, tenor.

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.

—Chorus—

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! —2nd verse—

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.

          ---Chorus---
