LYRIC

I came from Alabama

Wid my banjo on my knee,

I’m g’wan to Louisiana

My true love for to see,

It rain’d all night the day I left,

The weather it was dry,

The sun so hot I frose to death;

Susanna, don't you cry.

Oh! Susanna, Oh! don't you cry for me,

I’ve come from Alabama, wid my banjo on my knee.

When I jumped aboard de telegraph,

And trabbelled down de ribber,

De Lectrie fluid magnified,

And killed five hundred Nigger

De bullgine bust, de horse run off,

I realy thought I’d die;

I shut my eyes to hold my breath,

Susanna, don't you cry.

Oh! Susanna, Oh! don't you cry for me,

I’ve come from Alabama, wid my banjo on my knee.

I had a dream de odder night

When ebery ting was still;

I thought I saw Susanna,

She was coming down de hill.

The buckwheat cake war in her mouth,

The tear was in her eye,

I said I’m coming from de South,

Susanna, don't you cry.

Oh! Susanna, Oh! don't you cry for me,

I’ve come from Alabama, wid my banjo on my knee.

I soon will be in New Orleans,

And den I’ll look all round,

And when I find my Susanna,

I’ fall upon the ground.

But if I do not find her,

Dis darkie ’I surely die,

And when I’m dead and buried,

Susanna, don't you cry.

Oh! Susanna, Oh! don't you cry for me,

I’ve come from Alabama, wid my banjo on my knee.
