|Oh, Susanna – Key of C

Oh, Susanna! Oh, don't you cry for me

For 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.
I had a dream the other night when everything was still
I thought I saw Susanna a-coming down the hill
A red, red rose was in her hand, the tear was in her eye
I said, "I come from Dixieland. Susanna, don't you cry."
I soon will be in New Orleans and then I'll look around
And when I find Susanna I'll fall upon the ground
But if I do not find her I will surely die
And when I'm dead and buried Susanna, don't you cry
