Click Play Speed Slow 1/4=60 Medium 1/4=90 Fast 1/4=126

One of Stephen Foster's best know songs and commonly used for "Fall Back Six" in the barn/square dance context.
I come from Alabama with
a banjo on my knee,
I'm going to Louisiana and
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
Suzanna don't you cry.
Oh Suzanna, oh don't you cry for me,
I've come from Alabama with a banjo on
my knee.
I had a dream the other night
when everything was still
I thought I saw Suzanna
a-comin down the hill
A buckwheat cake was in her mouth,
a tear was in her eye
Says I, "I'm coming from the South
Suzanna don't you cry."
Oh Suzanna, oh don't you cry for me,
For I come from Alabama with
a banjo on my knee.
