Charleston Gals
Negro Hymns and Songs: Miscellaneous
 
AS I walked down the new-cut road,
I met the tap and I met the toad;
The toad commenced to whistle and sing,
And the possum cut the pigeon wing.
  Hi ho, for Charleston gals!        5
  Charleston gals are the gals for me.
 
Along come an old man riding by:
Old man, mind, or your horse will die;
If he dies I’ll tan his skin,
And if he lives I’ll ride him agin.        10
 
As I went a-walkin’ down the street,
Up steps Charleston gals to walk with me.
I kep’ a walkin’ and they kep’ a talkin’,
I danced with a gal with a hole in her stockin’.
  Hi ho! for Charleston gals!        15
  Charleston gals are the gals for me.
