Oh Susanna

This song is by Sons of the Pioneers and appears on the compilation album Songs of the Prairie (1998).

Oh Susanna, don't you cry for me
I'm goin' to Louisiana with my 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, don't you cry for me
I'm goin' to Louisiana with my banjo on my knee

(Oh, Susanna don't you cry for me)
I'm goin' to Louisiana with my banjo on my knee

I had a dream the other night when everything was still
I fell in love with Susanna, a-comin' down the hill
A buckwheat cake was in her mouth, a tear was in her eye
Said I, I'm comin' from the south, Susanna, don't you cry

Oh Susanna, don't you cry for me
I'm goin' to Louisiana with my banjo on my knee

(Oh Susanna, don't you cry for me)
I'm goin' to Louisiana with my banjo on my knee

Oh Susanna, don't you cry for me
I'm goin' to Louisiana with my banjo on my knee
