Jimmie Driftwood - On The Banks Of Beautiful Buffalo Lyrics


(Jimmy Driftwood)

-Mouth harp Solo-

Three old maids lived under the bluff
Shickle – ay – shoe and a – shuffle – low
In the Ozark Mountains, wild and rough
On the rocky banks of the Buffalo

One day a wild man came along
Shickle – ay – shoe and a – shuffle – low
And he tried to court them all day long
On the rocky banks of the Buffalo

He said to the youngest, be my bride
Shickle – ay – shoe and a – shuffle – low
I’ll take your hair and take your hide
On the rocky banks of the Buffalo

Before I’d be a wild man’s bride
Shickle – ay – shoe and a – shuffle – low
I’d lose my hair and lose my hide
On the rocky banks of the Buffalo

He took her skin and he turned her loose
Shickle – ay – shoe and a – shuffle – low
And she looked just like a new picked goose
On the rocky banks of the Buffalo

-Mouth harp Solo-

He said to the next one, be my wife
Shickle – ay – shoe and a – shuffle – low
I take your hide and take your life
On the rocky banks of the Buffalo

Before I’d be a wild man’s wife
Shickle – ay – shoe and a – shuffle – low
I’d lose my hide and lose my life
On the rocky banks of the Buffalo


He took her skin and he let her go
Shickle – ay – shoe and a – shuffle – low
And she danced all night on her heel and toe
On the rocky banks of the Buffalo

-Mouth harp Solo-

He said to the oldest, be my squaw
Shickle – ay – shoe and a – shuffle – low
I’ll take your skin from my mother – in – law
On the rocky banks of the Buffalo

She said, wild man, that cannot be
Shickle – ay – shoe and a – shuffle – low
I’m a tough old maid and you can’t skin me
On the rocky banks of the Buffalo

He threw at her with his hunting knife
Shickle – ay – shoe and a – shuffle – low
It bounced right back and took his life
On the rocky banks of the Buffalo

She put the skins back on her kin
Shickle – ay – shoe and a – shuffle – low
And they were twice as pretty and young again
On the rocky banks of the Buffalo

The more I love this tale, Old Pal
Shickle – ay – shoe and a – shuffle – low
Don’t ever get smart with an Ozark gal
On the rocky banks of the Buffalo

-Mouth harp Solo-
