​Howdi Do

This song is by Ramblin' Jack Elliott and appears on the album Jack Elliott Sings The Songs Of Woody Guthrie (1960) and on the Compilation album The Lost Topic Tapes: Isle Of Wight 1957 (2004).

This song is a cover of "Howdido" by ​Woody Guthrie.
I stick out my little hand
To ev'ry woman, kid and man
And I shake it up and down, howjido, howjido
Yes, I shake it up and down, howjido

Howji hijie heejie hojie...

And when you walk in my door,
I will run across my floor,
And I'll shake you by the hand,
Howjido, howjido,
Yes, I'll shake it up and down, howjido

On my sidewalk, on my street,
Any place that we do meet,
Then I'll shake you by your hand,
Howjido, howjido,
Yes, I'll shake it up and down, howjido

When I first jump out of bed,
Out my window goes my head,
And I shake it up and down,
Howjido, howjido,
I shake at all my windows, howjido

I feel glad when you feel good,
You brighten up my neighborhood,
Shakin' hands with ev'rybody,
Howjido, howjido,
Shakin' hands with ev'rybody, howjido

Howji hijie heejie hojie...
