    There's a bare bones version here:
    way_down_upon_the_swanee_river_454.gif

    Do I need to mention this isn't a 'gypsy jazz' version?

    best,
    Jack.

    Here's some basic changes for "Swanee."
    [ I of course, can't think of this song without remembering the Honeymooners episode where Ralph Kramden is a contestant
    on the show "Name That Tune,"] :lol:

    Well uh Django, Stephane and posse start out in "F" whereupon dey uh commence
    to uh modulatin,' eventually manage to return to F major, and play a nice
    on-the-spot-sounding-shout-chorus.
    [Beginners might get something out of figuring out the modulations,
    and also the pivot chord for the modulations. [ I left out the passing chords, Django's cool bass notes, etc.]

    F F7 Bb Bdim F F G7 C7
    //// //// //// //// //// //// //// ////


    F F7 Bb Bdim F C 7 F C7 F
    //// //// //// //// //// //// // // ////

    C7 F F7 Bb Bdim F C7
    //// //// //// //// //// // // //// ////


    F F7 Bb Bdim F C7 F F6
    //// //// //// //// //// //// //// ////

    Good luck!

    It looks like the chords got compressed when they posted to the site.
    I'll try it again later.

    This should be a little closer to what Barry was putting up:
    F     F7     Bb    Bdim   F       F     G7    C7
    ////  ////   ////  ////  ////   ////   ////   ////
    
    
    F     F7     Bb    Bdim   F      C 7   F  C7   F
    ////  ////   ////   ////  ////   ////   // //    ////
    
    C7           F      F7       Bb     Bdim        F      C7
    ////  ////   ////   ////     ////   // //       ////   ////
    
    
    F     F7     Bb    Bdim   F      C7    F       F6
    ////  ////   ////   ////  ////   ////   ////   ////
    

    best,
    Jack.
