Oh Suzannah I come from Alabama with my banjo on my knee! This incredible song is over 150 years old and still well known. In fact you can make jokes about having the banjo surgically removed etc. One guy I know had a banjo tattooed on his knee, made I laugh when he first showed it to me. The song was written by Stephen Foster who is one of the greatest songwriters of all time, many of his songs are still well known today.
