Sweet and shady groves!Come all ye pretty fair maids, and spin us some yarn
Through the wild woods we'll wander and we'll hunt the buffalo,
And we'll hunt the buffalo,
Thro' the wild woods we'll wander and we'll hunt the buffalo!
There are fishes in the river just fitted for our use
There's tall and lofty sugar cane that yields us some juice;
There is all kind of game, my boys, beside the buck and doe,
When we settle on the banks of the lovely Ohio.
