Oh Susannah

Oh Susannah
(Stephen Foster, arr. L. Berkner)


Guitar and vocal: L. Berkner
Melodica: Joe Ruddick


Well I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee
And I'm going to Lousianna
My true love for to see

O Susannah don't you cry for me
'Cause 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
Susannah don't you cry

O Susannah don't you cry for me
'Cause I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee

Well I had a dream the other night
That everything was still
I dreamed I saw Susannah
Coming down the hill
A buckwheat cake was in her mouth
And a tear was in her eye, says I
I'm comin' from the South
Susannah don't you cry

O Susannah don't you cry for me
'Cause I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee

DVD Version:

(Stephen Foster, arr. L. Berkner)

Well I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee
And I’m going to Lousianna
My true love for to see

O Susannah don’t you cry for me
‘Cause I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee

Well, it rained all night the day I left
The weather it was dry
And the sun so hot I froze to death
Susannah don’t you cry

O Susannah don’t you cry for me
‘Cause I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee

I had a dream the other night
When everything was still
I thought I saw Susannah
Coming down the hill
Well, a buckwheat cake was in her mouth
And a tear was in her eye, says I
I’m comin’ from the South
Susannah don’t you cry!

O Susannah don’t you cry for me
‘Cause I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee

O Susannah don’t you cry for me
‘Cause I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee
