American Ballads and Folk Songs
My true love has gone to France For his fortune to advance-When he returns, with him Ml dance, Ska-bibba-lala-boo and a slo-o-ow reel-
Chorus:
Shoo, shoo, shoo-lye reel,
Shoo-lye shacka-bubba shacka-bubba coo,
Since I saw the silla-billa hills,
Ska-bibba-lala-boo and a slo-o-ow reel.
Colorado Version
I wish I were in Boston city, Where all the girls they are so pretty j If I didn't have a time 'twould be a pity, Dis cum pebble-and-a-boo so reel.
Chorus:
Shoo, shoo, shoo-lye roo, Shoo-lye, shacka-lye, treat a barber coolj First time I saw a silla-billa eel, Dis cum pebble-and-a-boo so reel.
[299]
