The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music


Buffalo Gals

As I was walking down the street
5 Down the street, 1 down the street
A pretty girl I chanced to meet
And we 5 danced by the light of the 1 moon

Chorus
4 Buffalo gals, won't you 1 come out tonight
5 Come out tonight, 1 come out tonight
4 Buffalo gals, won't you 1 come out tonight
And 5 dance by the light of the 1 moon

I asked her if she'd stop and dance
Have a dance, care to dance
I thought that I might get a chance
to shake a foot with her

I danced with a gal with a hole in her stockin'
And her heel kept a-rockin' and her toe kept a-knockin'
I danced with a gal with a hole in her stockin'
And we danced by the light of the moon

It’s on Strum Machine!
