“Oh! Susanna” lyrics

1. Oh, I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee
I am goin’ to Lou’siana, my true love for to see

Oh Susanna! Don’t you cry for me!
For I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee

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

Oh Susanna! Don’t you cry for me!
For I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee

3. Now I had a dream the other night, when everything was still
and I thought I saw Susanna dear a-comin’ down the hill
and a buckwheat cake was in her mouth, a tear was in her eye
so I said I’m coming from the south, Susanna don’t you cry!

Oh Susanna! Don’t you cry for me!
For I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee

Oh Susanna! Don’t you cry for me!
For I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee
