Oh Susanna    sound clip

I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee
I'm goin' 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

Oh Susanna
Don't you cry for me
For I come from Alabama with
A banjo on my knee

I had a dream the other night
When everything was still
I dreamed I saw Susanna
A-comin' down the hill

A buckwheat cake was in her mouth
A tear was in her eye
Says I, I'm comin' from the south
Susanna, don't you cry

Oh Susanna . . .
