Buffalo Gals TML # 001498
Click Play Speed Slow 1/4=120 Medium 1/4=160 Fast 1/4=240

Mainly played as an instrumental, the words are rarely sung. As requested, the Buffalo [Bowery, etc.] girls promise to come out tonight, to dance or otherwise disport themselves by the light of the moon.
As I was walk-in' down the street, down the street, down the street.
A cute lit-tle miss I chanced to meet, and she was pret-ty to see.

Buf-falo Gals won't you come out to-night, come out to-night, come out tonight,
Buf-falo Gals won't you come out to-night, and dance by the light of the moon.

I asked her would she have some talk,
Have some talk, have some talk.
Her feet covered the whole sidewalk
As she stood close by me.
I asked her would she have a dance,
Have a dance, have a dance.
I thought I might get a chance
To shake a foot with her.

I'd like to make that gal my wife,
Gal my wife, gal my wife.
I'd be happy all my life.
If I had her by me.
