8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
I came to 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,  Oh, don't you cry for me,
I've come from Alabama with my banjo on my knee.
