VERSE 1

   F 
As I was walking down the street,

C7               F 
Down the street, down the street,

  
A pretty gal I chanced to meet,

  C7              F 
Under the silvery moon.

        C7              F 
Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight,

C7                F 
Come out tonight, come out tonight?

        C7              F 
Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight,

    C7                        F 
And dance by the light of the moon. 

  
VERSE 2

  F 
I asked her if she'd stop and talk,

C7             F 
Stop and talk, stop and talk,

  
Her feet took up the whole sidewalk,

    C7              F 
And she was fair to view.

        C7              F 
Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight,

C7                F 
Come out tonight, come out tonight?

        C7              F 
Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight,

    C7                        F 
And dance by the light of the moon. 

  
VERSE 3

  F 
I asked her if she'd have a dance,

C7            F 
Have a dance, have a dance,

  
I thought that I might get a chance,

   C7                F 
To shake a foot with her.

        C7              F 
Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight,

C7                F 
Come out tonight, come out tonight?

        C7              F 
Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight,

    C7                        F 
And dance by the light of the moon. 

  
VERSE 4

  F 
I asked her if she'd be my wife,

C7          F 
Be my wife, be my wife,

  
Then I'd be happy all my life,

   C7          F 
If she'd marry me.

        C7              F 
Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight,

C7                F 
Come out tonight, come out tonight?

        C7              F 
Buffalo gals, won't you come out tonight,

    C7                        F 
And dance by the light of the moon.
