Hi, Jenny! Ho, Jenny Johnson!
Copyright, 1880, by Will. H. Kennedy.

Once I loved a yaller girl, she said she'd marry me,
Hi, Jenny! ho, Jenny Johnson
Saw her eating apples at a huckleberry bee,
Hi, Jenny: ho, Jenny Johnson!
Took her to a ball, and we never did get back
Till the breaking of the morning, when you hear the chickens quack;
She wouldn't take the cars, so I took her in a hack,
Hi, Jenny! ho, Jenny Johnson! Jenny, Jenny Johnson, Johnson!

Chorus.
Hi. Jenny! so, Jenny! come along with me.
Hi, Jenny! ho, Jenny! so, my jenny Johnson!
Sweeter than the honey at a huckleberry bee,
Hi, Jenny! ho, Jenny Johnson!

Oh, my daughter Jenny, she's the sweetest girl in town,
Hi. Jenny! ho, Jenny! ho, my Jenny Johnson!
Captivates the neighborhood for miles and miles around,
Hi. Jenny! ho, Jenny Johnson!
Said she loved another and it broke my heart in two.
And I had to get it mended with a little piece of glue;
He gave me back my locket and a little silver shoe,
Hi, Jenny! ho, Jenny Johnson! Jenny, Jenny Johnson, Johnson!-Chorus.

Now my Jenny's married to a little yellow coon.
Hi. Jenny! ho, Jenny! ho, my Jenny Johnson!
Take care for Jenny's hubby, for he'd kill you mighty soon,
Hi. Jenny! ho, Jenny Johnson!
Wooly-headed picaninnies running 'round the floor.
For they say there's only two, but I wish they had a score;
I'm gwine away to China, so I'll never see her more.
Hi, Jenny! so, Jenny Johnson! Jenny, Jenny Johnson!-Chorus.
