Oh, Susanna!
Oh, don’t you cry for me
For I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee

I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee
I’m goin’ to Louisiana
My true love for to see

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

Oh, Susanna!
Oh, don’t you cry for me
For I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee
