Harry Belafonte - Suzanne Lyrics




Ev'ry night when the sun goes down
Ev'ry night when the sun goes down
Ev'ry night when the sun goes down
Hang my head and mournful cry
Suzanne, Suzanne, Suzanne you're gone

True love don't weep, true love don't mourn
True love don't weep, true love don't mourn
True love don't weep or mourn for me
Goin' back to mobile town
Suzanne, Suzanne, Suzanne you're gone

Someday I pray my train will come
Someday I pray my train will come
Someday I pray my train will come
Then I can go back where I come from
Suzanne, Suzanne, Suzanne you're gone

    I can't remember a time through my childhood when I didn't hear that voice at least once a day. Mum said that when I was two I had a crying fit when she stopped this record in the middle of a song. I believe her! 💕

    @lrh1966 thank you for uploading this wonderful album. I'm a long way from that two-year-old, but I love it just as much now. Maybe even more ☺

    By Tara who sings with Alice Rye (whose picture you see here): I remember in the early 50s when Harry Belafonte played a high school principal (his first film) and I was a teen living in a trailer park. I went to the movie and he sang that haunting song. Now I'm 77 and for awhile I live by a little lake in Brunswick , and sit at night where a great blue heron often flies, along with ducks and egrets, in the moon's light and I think of that song he sang when I was a young girl. It is my favorite of his songs.  His ballads and his velvet voice still affect me. One night I brought my guitar and sat on  stone bench in the moonlight and was a girl again, imagine Harry B. was singing it, too. Imagine...
