Oh Susannah
Oh Susannah
Oh Susannah
Oh Susannah

I had a dream the other night
Everything was still
I dreamed I saw Susannah
She was comin' 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
The tear was in her eye
Says I'm comin' from the South
Susannah don't you cry

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

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

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)

I had a dream the other night
Everything was still
I dreamed I saw Susannah
She was comin' 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
With my banjo on my knee
I'm goin' to Louisiana
My true love for to see

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)
Yeah, I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
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
(Oh Susannah, oh Susannah)
I come from Alabama with my B-A-N-J-O on my knee
