SWEET FIELDS OF VIOLO
How happy I was on my father's farm,
Sweet fields of Violo, Tending to my father's horses That I fed in the barns of Violo.
And a gee ho here and a gee ho there,
Here a gee and there a gee, and O pretty maids, won't you come and go with me
To the sweet fields of Violo!
How happy I was on my father's farm,
Sweet fields of Violo, Tending to my father's cows That I milked in the yards of Violo.
And a suke, suke here, and a suke, suke there,
Here a suke and there a suke, and
A gee ho here and a gee ho there,
Here a gee and there a gee, and 0 pretty maids, won't you come and go with me
To the sweet fields of Violo!
How happy I was on my father's farm, Sweet fields of Violo,
