   Listen to this song.

This song is available on "The Paw Paw Patch: Folk Songs Favorites for Children."

Oh, I went down South
For to see my gal
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
My Sal sure is a pretty gal
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Fare thee well, Fare thee well,
Fare thee well my fairy fay
For I'm going to Lou'siana For to see my Susyanna
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Now, I can't take long to sing this song
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
For Sal is waiting, and I must be gone
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Fare thee well, Fare thee well,
Fare thee well my fairy fay
For I'm going to Lou'siana For to see my Susyanna
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Oh, my Sal, she is a maiden fair
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day
With laughing eyes and curly hair
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Fare thee well, Fare thee well,
Fare thee well my fairy fay
For I'm going to Lou'siana For to see my Susyanna
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day

Fare thee well, Fare thee well,
Fare thee well my fairy fay
For I'm going to Lou'siana For to see my Susyanna
Sing Polly wolly doodle all the day.
