Stephen Foster s most well-known song, Oh! Susanna, is first performed at a saloon in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.Saturday, September 11th, 1847


    • Sadly I roam, Still longing for de old plantation, And for de old folks at home.
    • All up and down the whole creation, Sadly I roam, Still longing for the old plantation, And for the old folks at home.
    • All the world is sad and dreary, Everywhere I roam.
    • Oh I come from Alabama with a banjo on my knee, I'm going to Louisiana, 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 For I come from Alabama, With my banjo on my knee.
    • Gone are the days when my heart was young and gay, Gone are my friends from the cotton fields away, Gone from the earth to a better land I know, I hear their gentle voices calling 'Old Black Joe.'
    • Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me, Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee; Sounds of the rude world heard in the day, Lull'd by the moonlight have all pass'd away.
    • The head must bow, and the back will have to bend, Wherever the darkey may go; A few more days, and the trouble all will end, In the field where the sugar-canes grow. A few more days for to tote the weary load,- No matter, 't will never be light; A few more days till we totter on the road:- Then my old Kentucky home, good-night!
    • The day goes by like a shadow o'er the heart, With sorrow where all was delight; The time has come when the darkies have to part: Then my old Kentucky home, good night!
    • Old dog Tray 's ever faithful; Grief can not drive him away; He is gentle, he is kind- I shall never, never find A better friend than old dog Tray!
