O Susanna 

by Stephen Foster, arranged and adapted by Andrew Calhoun, recorded on Grapevine

Well I come from Alabama, with a banjo on my knee 
And I'm bound for Louisiana my own 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 

O Susanna, O don't you cry for me 
For I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee 

I jumped aboard of a steamboat and travelled down the river 
The captain got into a race and ran against a boulder 
The boiler bust and the boat caught fire, I really thought I'd die 
I shut my eyes to hold my breath, Susanna don't you cry 

O Susanna, O don't you cry for me 
For I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee 

I had a dream the other night when everything was still 
I dreamed I saw Susanna dear a-comin' down the hill 
The buckwheat cake was in her mouth, the tear was in her eye 
Says I, "I'm comin' from the South, Susanna don't you cry" 

O Susanna, O don't you cry for me 
For I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee 

I'll soon be down in New Orleans, and there I'll look around 
And when I see Susanna, I will fall down on the ground 
But if I cannot find her, then surely I will die 
So when I'm dead and buried, O Susanna don't you cry 

O Susanna, O don't you cry for me 
For I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee
