by Stephen Foster
I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee
I’m going to Louisiana
My true love for to see.
Oh, don’t you cry for me
For I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee
It rained all night the day
I left the weather it was dry
The sun so hot I froze to death
Susanna, don’t you cry
I had a dream the other night
When everything was still
I thought I saw Susanna
A-coming down the hill
A red, red rose was in her hand
The tear was in her eye
I said, “I come from Dixieland
Susanna, don’t you cry.”
I soon will be in New Orleans
And then I’ll look around
And when I find Susanna
I’ll fall upon the ground.
But if I do not find her
I will surely die
And when I’m dead and buried
Susanna, don’t you cry.
