"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.

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


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".


"Dance With The Dolly" (With The Hole In Her Stocking) from 1944 is sung to the same tune as "Buffalo Gals".
