Tom Jones I Won’t Be Sorry To See Suzanne Again Lyrics

The place, Appomattox, Virginia

the year 1865

Unable to maintain supplies of food and ammunition

The Southern rebels finally raise the White flag of surrender

General Robert E. Lee steps forward with General Grant of the Northern Yankees

To sign a truce that ends the American Civil War.

The clouds of battle slowly drift away

I must get down on my knees and pray

I thank the Lord it’s over, I live to see once more

The roses climbing ‘round the old back door

And I won’t be sorry to see Suzanne again

In heaven, since Lord I can’t remember when

Can’t remember when

I only hope the she still wants me

And I won’t be sorry to see the lights of our home

I’m dying to see the sweetest girl I know

Man I’ve been so low

Lord I won’t be sorry to see you Suzanne

For Five long years this old sad heart of mine

Has yearned to cross that Mason Dixie Line

But there’ll be no returnin’ for my brothers Who have died

And I feel the burning emptiness inside

But I won’t be sorry to see Suzanne again

In heaven, since Lord I can’t remember when

Can’t remember when

I only hope that she still wants me

No I won’t be sorry to see the lights of home

I’m dying to see the sweetest girl I know

Man I’ve been so low

Lord I won’t be sorry to see you Suzanne….
