Buffalo Gals

Buffalo Gals

As I was lumb’ring down the street
Down the street, down the street
A handsome gal I chanced to meet
Oh she was fair to view.

Buffalo gals won’t you come out tonight
Come out tonight, come out tonight
Buffalo gals won’t you come out tonight
And dance by the light of the moon.

I asked her if she’d have talk
Have a talk, have a talk
Her feet took up the whole sidewalk
As she stood close to me.

I asked her “would you want to dance”
Want to dance, want to dance
I  thought that I would have a chance
To shake a foot with her.

Oh, I danced with the gal with a hole in her stocking’
And her hip kept a-rockin’ and her toe kept a-knockin’
I danced with the gal with a hole in her stocking’
And we danced by the light of the moon

I danced with a gal with a wooden leg
I danced with a gal with a wooden leg
I danced with a gal with a wooden leg
I guess that’s the reason they called her Peg

Instruction on how to play this song can be found in Wayne Erbsen’s book:Clawhammer Banjo for the Complete Ignoramus
