Stephen Foster, 1848

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

2. 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
Chorus:
