    Here are the lyrics as written originally:

    My Old Kentucky Home, Good-Night (1853)

    Words & music by Stephen Collins Foster (1826-1864)

    1.
    The sun shines bright in the old Kentucky home,
    ’Tis summer, the darkies are gay,
    The corn top’s ripe and the meadows in the bloom,
    While the birds make music all the day.
    The young folks roll on the little cabin floor,
    All merry, all happy and bright:
    By’n by Hard Times comes a knocking at the door,
    Then my old Kentucky Home, good night!

    CHORUS
    Weep no more, my lady,
    Oh! weep no more to-day!
    We will sing one song for the old Kentucky Home,
    For the old Kentucky Home far away.

    2.
    They hunt no more for possum and the coon
    On the meadow, the hill, and the shore,
    They sing no more by the glimmer of the moon,
    On the bench by the old cabin door.
    The day goes by like a shadow o’er the heart,
    With sorrow where all was delight:
    The time has come when the darkies have to part,
    Then my old Kentucky Home, good-night!

    (CHORUS)

    3.
    The head must bow and the back will have to bend,
    Wherever the darkey may go:
    A few more days, and the trouble all will end
    In the field where the sugar-canes grow.
    A few more days for to tote the weary load,
    No matter, ’twill never be light,
    A few more days till we totter on the road,
    Then my old Kentucky Home, good-night!

    (CHORUS)

    Suzanne by Leonard Cohen

    Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
    You can hear the boats go by
    You can spend the night beside her
    And you know that she’s half crazy
    But that’s why you want to be there
    And she feeds you tea and oranges
    That come all the way from China
    And just when you mean to tell her
    That you have no love to give her
    Then she gets you on her wavelength
    And she lets the river answer
    That you’ve always been her lover
    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know that she will trust you
    For you’ve touched her perfect body with your mind

    And Jesus was a sailor
    When he walked upon the water
    And he spent a long time watching
    From his lonely wooden tower
    And when he knew for certain
    Only drowning men could see him
    He said ”All men will be sailors then
    Until the sea shall free them”
    But he himself was broken
    Long before the sky would open
    Forsaken, almost human
    He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
    And you want to travel with him
    And you want to travel blind
    And you think you’ll maybe trust him
    For he’s touched your perfect body with his mind

    Now Suzanne takes your hand
    And she leads you to the river
    She is wearing rags and feathers
    From Salvation Army counters
    And the sun pours down like honey
    On our lady of the harbour
    And she shows you where to look
    Among the garbage and the flowers
    There are heroes in the seaweed
    There are children in the morning
    They are leaning out for love
    And they will lean that way forever
    While Suzanne holds the mirror
    And you want to travel with her
    And you want to travel blind
    And you know that you can trust her
    For she’s touched your perfect body with her mind
