Well I come from Alabama 
with my banjo on my knee
and I'm bound for Louisiana, 
my own true love for to see.
It did rain all night the day I left, 
the weather was bone dry.
The sun was so hot I froze myself, 
Suzanne, don't you go on and cry.
I said, oh, Susannah, now, 
don't you cry for me,
as I come from Alabama 
with this banjo on my knee.

Well I had myself a dream the other night 
when everything was still,
I dreamed that I saw my girl Suzanne, 
she was comin' around the hill.
Now, the buckwheat cake was in her mouth, 
a tear was in her eye.
I said that I come from Dixieland, 
Suzanne, don't you break down and cry.
I said, oh, Susannah, now, 
don't you cry for me,
as I come from Alabama 
with my banjo on my knee.






This song features two guitar tracks. Both in standard tuning. 
For the 1st one you must use a capo on the 3rd fret. It is used 
the whole song through and it is played in A, matching the other 
one in C, for which you don't need the capo. This 2nd one is 
played just in the Intro and Outro.
