Oh Susanna

print

I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee
I’m going to Louisiana
My true love for to see

It rained all night the day I left
The weather it was dry
The sun so hot I froze to death
Susanna don’t you cry

    Oh Susanna
    Oh don’t you cry for me
    For I come from Alabama
    With my banjo on my knee

I had a dream the other night
When everything was still
I thought I saw Susanna
A-coming down the hill

The buckwheat cake was in her mouth
The tear was In her eye
Says I I’m coming from the south
Susanna don’t you cry

    Oh Susanna
    Oh don’t you cry for me
    For I come from Alabama
    With my banjo on my knee
