Lyrics


I nebber see de like since I was born,
When a big buck fella wid his sea boots on,
Says "Johnny come down to Hilo,
Poor old man!"
Oh! wake her, Oh! shake her,
Oh! wake dat girl wid de blue dress on!
When Johnny comes down to Hilo,
Poor old man.
I lub a little girl across de sea,
She's a Badian beauty, and she says to me,
"Oh! Johnny come down to Hilo,
Poor old man!"
Oh! wake her, Oh! shake her,
Oh! wake dat girl wid de blue dress on!
When Johnny comes down to Hilo,
Poor old man.
O, was you ebber down in Mobile Bay,
Where dey picked the cotton on a summer day?
When Johnny comes down to Hilo,
Poor old man.
Oh! wake her, Oh! shake her,
Oh! wake dat girl wid de blue dress on!
When Johnny comes down to Hilo,
Poor old man.
Did you ebber seen de old PIantation boss
Wid de long tailed filly and de big black hoss?
When Johnny come down to Hilo,
Poor old man!
Oh! wake her, Oh! shake her,
Oh! wake dat girl wid de blue dress on!
When Johnny comes down to Hilo, Poor old man.
