Suzanna
Baby, please come on back home to me
Suzanna
Baby, please come on back home to me
Well, that if I'd a-been anyways, contrary
Then God, knows I did not intend to be

Now that Suzanna just my type, man
A two dimples in her jaw
Now, that she ever mistreat me, man
I'd be force-ed to break the law

But Suzanna
Baby why don't you change your way?
Well, I don't want you to wait 'till you get old
Suzanna, change in your younger days

Well, said I've got somethin' to tell you, Suzanna baby
Know, soon I get the change
If you can't use it for your regular, Suzanna
I'd be crazy to be yo' man

But Suzanna
Baby come on back home to me
Well, if I'd a-been anyways, contrary
Then God knows I did not intend to be

(harmonica & guitar)

Boy, that Suzanna just my type with
Her two dimples in her jaw
Now, that she ever mistreat me
You know I'd be force-ed to break the law

But Suzanna
Baby, why don't you change your way?
Well, but I don't want you to wait 'till you get old
Suzanna, change in yo' younger day.
