Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

1 & 3 (2 & 4) will promenade halfway round the square
In the center half square thru, swing the corner there
Swing that gal and promenade, couples 1 & 3 (2 & 4) wheel around
Cross trail, U turn back for me (once more)
Right & left thru now, turn and whirlaway
Swing the right hand lady boys, take her home I say
Oh Susanna, don't you cry for me
Goin' to Alabama, a banjo on my knee


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

All four ladies promenade, once around the square
Box the gnat, gents star left, she's waiting for you there
Box the gnat once again, pull the lady by
Swing the corner lady, Susanna don't you cry
Left allemande new corner, dosado you see
Once around, promenade, I'm leavin' Tennessee
Oh Susanna, don't you cry for me
Goin' to Alabama, a banjo on my knee

Oh! Susanna
 
 

I come from Alabama with my banjo on my knee;
I'm goin' to Lou'siana 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 my banjo on my knee.

I had a dream the other night,
When everything was still;
I thought I saw Susanna dear,
A-coming down the hill.
The buckwheat cake was in her mouth,
The tear was in her eye,
Said I, I'm coming from the south,
Susanna don't you cry.

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

I soon will be in New Orleans,
And then I'll look all 'round,
And when I find Susanna,
I'll fall upon the ground.
But if I do not find her,
This darkey'll surely die,
And when I'm dead and buried,
Susanna don't you cry.

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

Lyrics by Stephen Foster.
