John t, there are so many versions and verses to Goodbye Liza-Susan-Suzy Jane that it would take a book to show them all.
I presume that you also looked at the thread 2777, "Goodbye, Liza Jane": Goodbye Liza Jane
Randolph, "Ozark Folksongs," collected a "Goodbye, Susan Jane" from Missouri. If not already posted, I will put it in the thead linked above.
The lyrics you remember may have been written for the film, which I haven't seen.
