about

Susanna on the Hillside

lyrics

Oh you said you wanted my baby
Said you wanted to be my wife
Susanna don’t you tell me
Tell me no more lies
Thought you were my darling
Though you were so fine
Thought that when I kissed you
That you would be mine

Susanna in the valley
Susanna up on high
Susanna on the hillside
Running for your life

One day they took me
Off to fight their war
Never for to see you
Or hear your voice no more
Wished I had the time
Or the peace of mind
To tell you that I loved you
Susanna don’t you cry

Susanna in the valley
Susanna up on high
Susanna on the hillside
Running for your life

Could have brought you flowers
Would have worked two jobs
Just to keep you safe
From that wicked preachers knife
He thought it was his baby
When you showed a sign
Tried to have you killed
For a child that was mine

Susanna in the valley
Susanna up on high
Susanna on the hillside
Running for her life

Had to swim for safety
Across that river wide
Now you are a running
A running for your life
Someday I hope you’ll find me
Sitting' in a big arm chair
Coming across that hillside
With flowers in your hair

Susanna in the valley
Susanna up on high
Susanna on the hillside
Running for your life
