O, Susannah 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, dont you cry. Chorus: Oh! Susanna, Oh! dont 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, dont you cry.
