Oh! Susanna
1.
I come from Alabama
with my banjo on my knee;

De weadder it was dry;
The sun so hot I froze to def,
Susanna, don’t you cry.
Oh! Susanna, do not cry for me;
I come from Alabama, Wid my banjo on my knee.
2.
I had a dream de udder night,
when ebry ting was still;
I thought I saw Susanna dear,
a coming down de hill,
The buckweat cake was in her mouf,
de tear was in her eye,
Say I, I'se coming from de souf,
Susanna don't you cry.
3.
I soon will be in new Orleans,
And den I'll look all 'round,
And when I find Susanna,
I'll fall upon de ground.
But if I do not find her,
Dis darkey'll surely die,
And when I'm dead and buried,
Susanna don't you cry.

ということで、少なくとも20世紀に関していえば、第一に、4番の歌詞がフォスターのものではないというような異論があったとは思えません。そして、第二に、2番の歌詞を排除したのは必ずしも「最近」とか「近年」のこととは言えない。

  ちなみに津川主一の4番まである日本語訳は、 「童謡データベース」を信じれば1948年、つまり"Oh! Susanna" の楽譜が初めて印刷された1848年からちょうど100年後の発表だそうです。
