I am boy (?) wild well goes around
I met a girl on the Georgia Line, (?) hold the wood pile down

Oh shake me wake me don't let me sleep too late
I'm gonna away in the morning to swing on the Golden Gate

All belong to the Methodist church, all be good to know
They ain/t got money but (?) gonna get you (?)

Oh shake me wake me don't let me sleep too late
I'm gonna away in the morning to swing on the Golden Gate

I asked that gal to marry me, what's you're age she said
Where you (?) you pop eyed ghoul, (?) out of your head

Oh shake me wake me don't let me sleep too late
I'm gonna away in the morning to swing on the Golden Gate

Once I had a nickel and once I had a dime
Once I had a poor little gal, didn't really call her mine

Oh shake me wake me don't let me sleep too late
I'm gonna away in the morning to swing on the Golden Gate

(?) get by the gal I (?) she (?) by the pound
She had a big bowl of (?) stayed around

Oh shake me wake me don't let me sleep too late
I'm gonna away in the morning to swing on the Golden Gate
