Row, Row, Row Your Boat” is an English nursery rhyme. It’s also considered an “action” rhyme, as singers often sit opposite of each other, join hands, and pretend to row a boat. The earliest printing of the song is from 1852. The lyrics were very much like the onces we sing today, but the melody was very different. It was first recorded with our modern tune in 1881.

Lyrics
You are my sunshine
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You’ll never know, dear,
How much I love you.
Please don’t take my sunshine away.

The other night, dear,
As I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms.
When I awoke, dear,
I was mistaken
And I hung my head and cried.

You are my sunshine,
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You’ll never know, dear,
How much I love you.
Please don’t take my sunshine away.

I’ll always love you
And make you happy
If you will only say the same
But if you leave me
To love another
You’ll regret it all some day;.

You are my sunshine,
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You’ll never know, dear,
How much I love you.
Please don’t take my sunshine away.

You told me once, dear
You really loved me
And no one else could come between
But now you’ve left me
And love another
You have shattered all my dreams;.

You are my sunshine,
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You’ll never know, dear,
How much I love you.
Please don’t take my sunshine away.

Louisiana my Louisiana
the place where I was borne.
White fields of cotton
— green fields clover,
the best fishing
and long tall corn;.

You are my sunshine,
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You’ll never know, dear,
How much I love you.
Please don’t take my sunshine away.
Crawfish gumbo and jambalaya
the biggest shrimp and sugar cane,
the finest oysters
and sweet strawberries
from Toledo Bend to New Orleans;.

You are my sunshine,
My only sunshine.
You make me happy
When skies are grey.
You’ll never know, dear,
How much I love you.
Please don’t take my sunshine away.

History

She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain, sometimes refered to as Coming ‘Round the Mountain, is an American folk song. The song was first printed in Carl Sandburg’s, The American Songbag (1927), though it is believed to have dated from the late 1800s.

Lyrics

She’ll be coming round the mountain when she comes,
She’ll be coming round the mountain when she comes,
She’ll be coming round the mountain,
She’ll be coming round the mountain,
She’ll be coming round the mountain when she comes.

She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes,
She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes,
She’ll be driving six white horses,
She’ll be driving six white horses,
She’ll be driving six white horses when she comes.

Oh, we’ll all go out to meet her when she comes,
Oh, we’ll all go out to meet her when she comes,
Oh, we’ll all go out to meet her,
We’ll all go out to meet her,
We’ll all go out to meet her when she comes.

We’ll be havin’ chicken and dumplings when she comes,
We’ll be havin’ chicken and dumplings when she comes,
We’ll be havin’ chicken and dumplings,
We’ll be havin’ chicken and dumplings,
We’ll be havin’ chicken and dumplings when she comes.

The Old Gray Mare is a classic folk song that has more recently been adopted into the standard collection of American children’s songs.  The text refers to a horse, though the lyrics may also be referring to a woman that is well past her prime.

Lyrics
Oh, the old gray mare, she ain’t what she used to be,
Ain’t what she used to be, ain’t what she used to be.
The old gray mare, she ain’t what she used to be,
Many long years ago.

Many long years ago, many long years ago.

The old gray mare, she ain’t what she used to be,
Many long years ago.

The old gray mare, she kicked on the whiffletree,
Kicked on the whiffletree, kicked on the whiffletree
The old gray mare, she kicked on the whiffletree
Many long years ago.

Many long years ago, many long years ago,

The old gray mare, she kicked on the whiffletree
Many long years ago.

Arkansas Traveler Lyrics
Oh once upon a time in Arkansas
An old man sat in his little cabin door,
And fiddled at a tune that he liked to hear,
A jolly old tune that he play’d by ear.
It was raining hard but the fiddler didn’t care
He saw’d away at the popular air,
Tho’ his roof tree leaked like a water fall
That didn’t seem to bother the man at all.

A traveler was riding by that day,
And stopped to hear him a-practicing away
The cabin was afloat and his feet were wet,
But still the old man didn’t seem to fret.
So the stranger said: “Now the way it seems to me,
You’d better mend your roof,” said he.
But the old man said, as he played away:
“I couldn’t mend it now, it’s a rainy day.”

The traveler replied: “That’s all quite true,
But this, I think, is the thing for you to do;
Get busy on a day that is fair and bright,
Then pitch the old roof till it’s good and tight.”
But the old man kept on a-playing at his reel,
And tapped the ground with his leathery heel:
“Get along,” said he, “for you give me a pain;
My cabin never leaks when it doesn’t rain.”
