Oh Susanna Harmonica Tab

by Stephen Foster 1848

Key: Any key Harmonica played in 1st Position.

Because of the way a diatonic harmonica is tuned you can play this song with any 10-hole harmonica that you have. However, if you want to jam along in tune with a recording, you will need a harmonica in the key of the recording for the tab below.



4-4   5    6   6-6  6  5
 I came from Al-a-bam-a

 4  -4  5  5  -4  4  -4
with my ban-jo on my knee;

4-4   5    6  6   -6  6 5
I'm goin' to Lou-'si-an-a

4-4   5    5  -4  -4  4
M-y true love for to see.

4-4   5     6    6   -6   6  5   4
I-t rained all night the day I left

-4    5   5  -4  4  -4
The weath-er it was dry;

4 -4  5   6  6 -6   6    5   4
Th-e sun so hot I froze to death,

-4  5  5    -4   -4   4
Su-san-na, don't you cry.

-5  -5 -6  -6  -6    6    6   5   4  -4
Oh, Su-san-na, oh, don't you cry for me;

4 -4   5    6   6-6  6  5
I-ve come from Al-a-bam-a

 4  -4  5  5  -4 -4   4
with my ban-jo on my knee.
