I Won't Be Sorry To See Suzanne Again

This song is by Tom Jones and appears on the album Close Up (1972).

The place, Appomattox, Virginia
The year 1865
Unable to maintain supplies of food and ammunition
The Southern rebels finally raise the White flag of surrender
General Robert E. Lee steps forward with General Grant of the Northern Yankees
To sign a truce that ends the American Civil War.

The clouds of battle slowly drift away
I must get down on my knees and pray
I thank the Lord it's over, I live to see once more
The roses climbing ‘round the old back door

And I won't be sorry to see Suzanne again
In heaven, since Lord I can't remember when
Can't remember when
I only hope the she still wants me
And I won't be sorry to see the lights of our home
I'm dying to see the sweetest girl I know
Man I've been so low
Lord I won't be sorry to see you Suzanne

For Five long years this old sad heart of mine
Has yearned to cross that Mason Dixie Line
But there'll be no returnin' for my brothers Who have died
And I feel the burning emptiness inside
But I won't be sorry to see Suzanne again
In heaven, since Lord I can't remember when
Can't remember when

I only hope that she still wants me
No I won't be sorry to see the lights of home
I'm dying to see the sweetest girl I know
Man I've been so low
Lord I won't be sorry to see you Suzanne...
