Words by Edward Harrigan. Music by Dave Braham.

Dar's a town dat's mighty high, just across from Jersey;
We'll get over dar by'n by, just across from Jersey;
I believe dey calls it old New York, just across from Jersey,
It's dar dese people gwine to talk, just across from Jersey.

Oh, far'ye well, good strangers,
Dese niggers gwine to walk,
No more we'll roam, oh, carry us home,
'Way back to old New York.

Wenches have a rolling eye, just across from Jersey;
When you're sick take rock and rye, just across from Jersey;
Oh, colored people never thin, just across from Jersey;
Dey fatten up on old Tom Gin, just across from Jersey.-Chorus.

Happy times in Thompson Street, just across from Jersey;
Yaller gals with tender feet, just across from Jersey;
Oh, tic me down and keep me dar, just across from Jersey;
I'd rather starve and live on air, just across from Jersey. Chorus.
