Oh, Susanna! is a traditional song by written Stephen Foster (1826–1864), first published in 1848. It is among the most popular American songs ever written. It is one of Harry's personal favorite songs in the series.

History Edit

In 1846, Stephen Foster moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, and became a bookkeeper with his brother's steamship company. While in Cincinnati, Foster wrote "Oh! Susanna", possibly for his men's social club.The song was first performed by a local quintet at a concert in Andrews' Eagle Ice Cream Saloon in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on September 11, 1847. It was first published by W. C. Peters & Co. in Cincinnati in 1848. Blackface minstrel troupes performed the work, and, as was common at the time, many registered the song for copyright under their own names. As a result, it was copyrighted and published at least twenty-one times from February 25, 1848, through February 14, 1851.

Lyrics Edit

Seasons 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 versionEdit

Oh, I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee,
And I'm going to Louisiana,
My true love for to see.

Oh, it rained all night the day I left,
The weather, it was dry.
The sun so hot, I froze to deaf.
Susanna, don't you cry!

Oh, Susanna!
Oh, don't you cry for me!
For I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee.

Oh, I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee.
And I'm going to Louisiana,
My Susanna for to see.

Oh, it rained all night the day I left.
The weather, it was dry.
Oh, the sun so hot, I froze myself.
Susanna, don't you cry!

Oh, Susanna!
Oh, don't you cry for me!
I come from Alabama
With a banjo on my knee.
