BUFFALO GIRL

BUFFALO  GIRL     WON’T  YOU  COME  OUT  TONIGHT

Looks like she lives in her   cab

Grown mean ’cause her dream

has turned    Southern Gothic

She is grimy and talkative   and      lonely

 

Enchanted by the   idea   of New Orleans

at 16         Came down after high school

her cab now a shrine      where the smell

of shrimp wafts up      off of  blue vinyl

__

Buffalo gals, won’t you come out tonight?
Come out tonight, Come out tonight?
Buffalo gals, won’t you come out tonight,
And dance by the light of the moon.
(1844    John Hodges)

Winter 2013      For  Illinois Atkins    & the City that care forgot

    Buffalo Girl is a pretty nice girl,
    someday I’m gonna make her mine.
    Oh yeah, someday I’m gonna make her mine.
