lyrics

Well I’ve come from Alabama,
My banjo on my knee.
I’ve gone to Louisiana,
My true love for to see.
It rained all night the day I left.
The weather was bone dry.
The sun so hot I froze to death.
Susanna, don’t you cry.
(Chorus)
Oh Susanna, don’t you cry for me.
I’ve 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.
She was coming up the hill.
A buckwheat cake was in her mouth,
And a tear was in her eye.
I said, “I’m a coming from the south.
Susanna, don’t you cry.
(Chorus)

When I get to New Orleans,
Then I’ll look around.
And if I find Susanna,
I will fall down on the ground.
But if I do not find that girl,
This man will surely die.
And when I’m dead and buried, Lord!
Susanna, don’t you cry.
(Chorus)
