Words by William Lewis Elliott. Music by Theo. H. Northrup.

Many happy evenings I spent when but a lad
With some other fellow's sister, quite safe away from dad;
We gathered in the evening, a merry, honest group.
For to learn the waltz step on Pat Wiley's old back stoop.

First four, side four, all waltz around;
The boys and girls all dancing to the music's sweetest sound;
Kitty played the organ, and Bowman played the flute,
While we danced the wattz step on Pat Wiley's old back stoop.

Pretty Mamie Reilly, with dimpled rosy face,
She's my girl, my steady sweetheart, with her I hold first place,
And Jerimiah Joshias, who used to have the croup,
Used to dance the waltz step on Pat Wiley's old back stoop. - Chorus.

When the cocks were crowing, our homeward way we took,
While we sang the dear old hymn tunes we learned from Parson Cook;
Those many happy evenings I spent there in the group,
When we learned the waltz step on Pat Wiley's old back stoop.- Chorus.
