Well, I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee
Well, I'm heading on earth at old Missisipp'
Got a new woman waiting for me
Oh oh oh Susanna, don't you cry for me
'cause I'm going to Louisiana with a b-a-n-j-o on my knee.
Well, it rained so hard the night I left
The wind blew terrible storm
So I'm heading on earth at old Muddy River
Where the sun gonna keep me from home.
Well, now now one of these morning,
and it won't be at long,
you gonna Wake up little Suzy
You're gonna find me gone - Wow!
You know, I'm going to Loisiana with a b-a-n-j-o on my knee!
