1. I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee,
I'm goin' to Louisiana,
My true love for to see.
It rained all day the night I left
The weather was so dry
The sun so hot I froze myself
Susanna, don't you cry.
Oh! Susanna, Oh! don't you cry for me,
For I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee.

2. I had an dream the other night,
When ev'rything was still,
I thought I saw Susanna
Acoming down the hill,
The buckwheat cake was in her mouth,
The tear was in her eye
I says I'm coming from the South,
Susanna, don't you cry.
