OH SUSANNA

Backing track adapted from the

famous old song of the USA by Stephen Foster

Lyrics adapted from Ballad of America and Wikipedia


“Well 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, do not cry for me;

For I come from Alabama, with my banjo on my knee…”
