Oh! Susanna, written by Stephen Foster. First performed in 1847 and published in 1848.
Nice. Great words to the second verse too.
A fan of your on BHO and now a fan of yours on Minstrel Banjo.
I have never found a very good explanation about what "electric fluid" is supposed to represent. anyone here know the answer?
thanks Tom, I was reading in John Fogerty's book Fortunate Son that his very first song influence was Stephen Foster, like myself. We learned his songs in grade school.
Wow! That's surprising. I thought everyone, even in other countries, was familiar with "Oh! Susanna". Kids often make up their own words to known simple melodies (contrafacta). I wonder if they still do that. My ex-wife (5 years younger than I) used to sing, "Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg!"
