Beautiful dreamer, wake unto me,
Starlight and dewdrops are waiting for thee;
De Camptown racetrack five miles long--
Oh! doo-dah-day!
Gwine to run all night!
Gwine to run all day!
I'll bet my money on de bobtail nag--
Somebody bet on de bay.
I dream of Jeanie with the light brown hair.
Massa's in de cold, cold ground.
The sun shines bright in the old Kentucky home;
'Tis summer, the darkeys are gay;
The head must bow, and the back will have to bend,
Wherever the darkey may go;
Oh! Susanna, do not cry for me;
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,
All the world is sad and dreary, Everywhere I roam.
