  1. Susanna's Song

From the recording Susanna's Song

Lyrics

I heard you might be coming back tomorrow
I know how hard you’ve tried to get away
I’ll come down the hill at evening
In hopes that maybe this time you can stay

Oh my darling, are you coming home?
Cross the Mississippi
Cross the Mississippi for to see me

I remember on the day you left me
You took the chance to play me one last tune
And as you headed east to Alabama
You promised that you’d find a way back soon

Oh my darling, are you coming home?
Cross the Mississippi
Cross the Mississippi for to see me

Your hands were never meant for picking cotton
My back was not intended for the fields
But we can make it if we have each other
Nothing breaks the tenderness we feel

Oh my darling, are you coming home?
Cross the Mississippi
Cross the Mississippi for to see me
Oh my darling, are you coming home?
Cross the Mississippi
Cross the Mississippi
Cross the Mississippi for to see me
