Banjo on My Knee

I still recall when I was in the school choir and this was one of the warm up songs.. Banjo on My Knee. And then it become sort of a sing a long session when we go to karaoke because it seems it was so catchy that even people that didn’t know the song will catch on in a matter of minutes.. and then we will all burst all laughing when the song ends… lol!

Anyway, there’s plenty of version of the song but this version is the one I always sing to.. minus the dancing of course.. lol!

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
Chorus:
Oh, Susanna,
Oh don’t you cry for me
For I come from Alabama
With my banjo on my knee
2. I had a dream the other night when everything was still
I thought I saw Susanna a-coming down the hill
The buckwheat cake was in her mouth
The tear was in her eye
Says I, I’m coming from the south
Susanna, don’t you cry

Cheerio…
