Oh Susanna

4 (4) 5 6 6 (6) 6 5
I came from Alabama

4 (4) 5 5 (4) 4 (4)
with my banjo on my knee;

4 (4) 5 6 6 (6) 6 5
I’m goin’ to Lou’sian-a
4 (4) 5 5 (4) (4) 4
My true love for to see.
4 (4) 5 6 6 (6) 6 5 4
It rained all night the day I left
(4) 5 5 (4) 4 (4)
The weather it was dry;

4 (4) 5 6 6 (6) 6 5 4
The sun so hot I froze to death,
(4) 5 5 (4) (4) 4
Susanna, don’t you cry.
(5) (5) (6) (6) (6) 6 6 5 4 (4)
Oh, Su-san-na, oh, don’t you cry for me;
4 (4) 5 6 6 (6) 6 5
I-ve come from Alabama
4 (4) 5 5 (4) (4) 4
with my ban-jo on my knee.
