Oh! Susanna Lyrics

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.

Chorus:
Oh! Susanna, Oh! don't you cry for me,
I’ve come from Alabama, wid my banjo on my knee.

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.

Chorus:

I had a dream de odder night
When ebery ting was still;
I thought I saw Susanna,
A coming down de hill.
The buckwheat cake war in her mouth,
The tear was in her eye,
Says I’m coming from de South,
Susanna, don't you cry.

Chorus:

I scon will be in New Orleans,
And den I’ll look all round,
And when I find 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.
