(Original Lyrics) 
I come from Alabama with my Banjo on my knee 
I'se gwine to Lou'siana my true lub for to see. 
It rain'd all night de day I left, de wedder it was dry; 
The sun so hot I froze to def - Susanna, don't you cry. 
 
Oh! Susanna, do not cry for me 
I come from Alabama, wid my Banjo on my knee. 
 
(Modernized Lyrics) 
I come from Alabama with my 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 a Banjo on my knee.
