It might help to know that the song is SUSANNAH and the artist is Katriona Gilmore. Her partner is Jamie Roberts. They perform SUSANNAH in a video at YouTube.

You can hear a better recording of the complete song at Katriona Gilmore & Jamie Roberts' MySpace page. Here's my transcription:

(Hey, I like this song.)


1. I'm a traveler who wanders far and wide.
I play in city streets or countryside;
But the tunes don't grow themselves; they're hard to find,
So I write them for my love I've left behind.

2. I write her letters, talk as if she's there.
I'm a minstrel for the workers in the square,
And the banjo notes so gently like a dove
I must send the money homewards to my love.

CHORUS: Since I've been back from Alabama,
She's been at my throat claw and hammer.
She'd sooner see me out the door.
Susannah won't cry for me anymore.

3. However hard it rains, the streets stay dry.
Though my skin burns red, I freeze inside.
The weather here's too strange for simple men.
If I make it home, I won't leave her again. CHORUS.

They also allegedly have their own web site, but I couldn't open it. Maybe it's temporarily down.

And here's their Facebook page
