Oh Susanna


I come from Alabama with my
Banjo on my knee;
I'm going to Louisiana,
My true love for to see.
Oh, Susanna, oh don't you cry for me.
For I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee.

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.
Oh, Susanna, oh don't you cry for me.
For I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee.

A buckwheat cake was in her mouth;
A 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.

By
Stephen Foster
