Oh Susanna
Arr. James Taylor

Well I[Amaj7] come fro[Bm7]m Al[C#m7]abama [F#m7]with a b[A]anjo[F#m7] on my [Bm7]knee
And I'm [Amaj7]bound for [Bm7]Loui[C#m7]siana,[F#m7] my own [Bm7]true lov[Bm7/E]e for to s[A9]ee
It [Amaj7]did rain all [Bm7]night the [Cmaj7]day I l[F#m7]eft
The we[A]ather [F#m7]was bone [Bm7]dry
The [Amaj7]sun was so [Bm7]hot I f[C#m7]roze m[F#m7]yself
Su[Bm7]zanne don't you [Bm7/E]break down and [A9]cry
     [Dmaj7]        [Bm7]       [Bm7/E]                                                                                          
I said Oh Suzanna ------

Now do[A]n't you [F#m7]cry for [Bm7]me
As I [Amaj7]come from [Bm7]Alab[C#m7]ama with a [Bm7]banjo [Bm7/E]on my [A9]knee

Well I[Amaj7] had myself a [Bm7]dream the [C#m7]other [F#m7]night
When [A]eve[F#m7]rything was [Bm7]still
I [Amaj7]dreamed that I [Bm7]saw my gi[C#m7]rl Suz[F#m7]anne
She was [Bm7]coming a[Bm7/E]round the [A9]hill
Now the b[Amaj7]uckwheat c[Bm7]ake was i[C#m7]n her [F#m7]mouth
A t[A]ear was i[F#m7]n her [Bm7]eye
I [Amaj7]said that I [Bm7]come from D[C#m7]ixie l[F#m7]and
Su[Bm7]zanne don't you [Bm7/E]break down and cr[A9]y
   [Dmaj7]        [Bm7]       [Bm7/E]                                                                                            
I said Oh Suzanna ------

Now [A]don't you [F#m7]cry for [Bm7]me
As I [Amaj7]come from [Bm7]Alab[C#m7]ama with a [Bm7]banjo o[Bm7/E]n my k[A9]nee
