Huckleberry Hunting


Lyrics from Songs of American Sailormen, by Joanna Colcord

Oh, the boys and the girls went a-huckleberry hunting,
To me way aye aye aye aye i yah!
Oh, the boys and the girls went a-huckleberry hunting,
And sing high-low, my Ranzo Ray!

Then a little girl ran off, and a boy he ran after,
To me way aye aye aye aye i yah!
And the little girl fell down and he saw her little garter.
And sing high-low, my Ranzo Ray!

He said, "I'll be your beau if you'll have me for a feller,"
To me way aye aye aye aye i yah!
But the little girl said "No, for my sweetheart's Johnny Miller."
And sing high-low, my Ranzo Ray!
