2  I jumped aboard de telegraph
And trabbeled down de ribber, De 'lectric fluid magnified,
And killed five hundred nigger; De bullgine bust, de horse run oS,
I really thought I'd die; I shut my eyes to hold my breatn,
Susanna, don't you cry,
3  I had a dream do udder night,
When ebsryting was still; 1 thought I saw Susanna, A coming down de hill;
De buckwheat-cake was in her mouth,
De tear was in her eye, Says I, I'm coming from de South,
Susanna, don't you cry;
.4 Oh! when I gets to New Orleans
I'll look all round and round, And when 1 find Susanna
I'll fall right on de ground; But if I do not find her,
Dis darkey'l surely die, And when I'm dead and buried,
Susanna, don't you cry.
