Oh, Susanna!

from by Hullabaloo



A tropical take on an American classic. Who says you can’t have banjo in a reggae song?


I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee
I'm going 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 come from Alabama,
With my banjo on my knee

I had a dream the other night when everything was still
I thought I saw Susanna coming down the hill
The red, red rose was in her hand, a tear was in her eye
Says I, I'm coming from the South, 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 down on the ground
When I finally find my dear the clouds will clear the sky
At last, at last our time is near, Susanna don't you cry
