Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

Well the 4 little ladies chain the ring, turn 'em with an arm around
Roll that lady 1/2 sashay, circle to the left go round
4 little ladies gonna roll away, circle left and then
Allemande left the corner & you weave around again
Oh Susanna don't you cry for me
Swing that lady around & promenade you see
Oh Susanna don't you cry for me
I come from Alabama with my banjo on my knee


FIGURE    Basic, corner progression

Head (side) two couples promenade go 1/2 way round the ring
Walk to the middle a right & left thru, turn the girl I sing
You square thru in the middle & count to 4 and go
Round that corner lady now you do a dosado
Swing thru & then all the boys trade and then
Swing, swing the corner girl & promenade the ring
Oh Susanna don't you cry for me
I come from Alabama with my banjo on my knee

Oh! Susanna Lyrics ID: 842

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.
