"Buffalo Gals" was originally a Minstrel Song. It became so popular that it quickly became used in all different musical genres.

I love this song for its use in the movie "It's a Wonderful Life" with James Stewart.


Composed by Cool White (real name John Hodges) in 1844. It was originally called "Lubly Fan". Mark Twain used this song in his book "Tom Sawyer".


This has the same tune as "Rig a Jig Jig" except for the last line of each verse.
