Oh Susannah
Oh Susannah
Oh Susannah
Oh Susannah
I had a dream the other night
Everything was still
I dreamed I saw Susanna
She was coming down the hill

Oh oh oh Susannah, don't you cry for me,
(Oh Susannah, Oh Susannah)
'Cause I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee,
(Oh Susannah, Oh Susannah)

Buckwheat cake was in her mouth, (Oh Susannah, Oh Susannah)
The tear was in her eye
Said I, I'm coming from the South
Susannah, don't you cry

Oh Susannah, don't you cry for me, (Oh Susannah, Oh Susannah)
'Cause I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee

Rained all night the day I left
The weather, it was dry
Sun so hot I froze to death
Susanna, don't you cry

Oh oh oh Susannah, don't you cry for me
'Cause I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
I had a dream the other night
That everything was still
I dreamed I saw Susanna
She was coming down the hill

Oh oh oh Susannah, don't you cry for me
(Oh Susannah, Oh Susannah)
'Cause I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, Oh Susannah)

Well I come from Alabama, (Oh Susannah, Oh Susannah)
With my banjo on my knee, (Oh Susannah, Oh Susannah)
I'm gone to Louisiana, (Oh Susannah, Oh Susannah)
My true love for to see

Oh oh oh Susannah, don't you cry for me
'Cause I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
Yeah I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
Yeah I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
