It has so many names and variations that it is difficult to search for similar versions. With its most familiar lyrics, it had its heyday as a minstrel show song. I think it also may have ties to African American dance song lyrics. The minstrel shows had a complex and often disturbing history of both demeaning representations of African Americans and the blending of African and European American culture. Both white and African American performers shared the stage wearing blackface.

Both white and African American artists could write songs and skits for the stage. It created venues where, behind their makeup, performers could speak out for abolition, even as they perpetuated negative stereotypes of African Americans. The history of variations of the song before the published versions is obscure.

It is the minstrel versions that were published as sheet music for people to buy for their parlor pianos beginning in the s. One of the reasons the history is confusing is that historians tend to look at those published dates and start from there. But songs can have a history long before they Beautiful lady want group sex Buffalo published.

His version of the song is sung in the role of an African American man meeting a girl, Lovely Fanny Lubly Fanand has a familiar chorus where he calls her to come out and dance. This was published in Christman, was also published in The Ethiopian Serenaders adapted the song for audiences in different towns they performed in.

It was in the early s that the minstrel show phenomenon was just taking off and audiences wanted more of it. Songs were published at that time because of the new demand. This was a hit song that Beautiful lady want group sex Buffalo wanted to capitalize on and everyone with a song to sell was rushing to publish at the same time. It is introduced in the collection of songs as having been sung by W.

Donaldson, a banjo player and a songwriter from New York. One example is pictured at the top of this blog. He could not have been the original composer of the tune as claimed on the sheet music, as that was a traditional dance tune that likely existed long before any of these songs. A copy digitized by the Boston Public Library is available at the link from archive. It continued to be published in songsters in the s. Den de Bowery gals will come out to night.

Published between between and Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division. This song has elements that date to the appearance of the comic character Jim Crow and the early acts that led to the development of the minstrel stage. The invention of the character is credited to Thomas Tom D. Rice who performed as Jim Crow starting in about By he was known for the role.

No one knows exactly what the dance looked like. Juba dance was an energetic African American dance style that drew inspiration from African, Haitian, and European American dance. I wish there had been film in that era so that we could see examples of the original. Its closest relatives emerged in the 19th century and are still known today as hambone, wing dance, and buck dance.

Features of it survive in many modern styles of African American dance. The importance of Lane to the development of the minstrel stage is indicated by one story. The Ethiopian Serenaders toured England in They were understandably criticized for being fake — white men in black-face pretending to present African American music. So on their next trip to London in they took Lane with them, billing him as Master Juba. They knew him and regarded him as a worthy talent to add to their show, and from this we can guess that he might have been in some way a mentor as well.

This helps explain the dance, but where were white performers who imitated African American dance wearing blackface getting their song ideas? One of the stories about Tom Rice was that he learned from African Americans in the South where he performed.

I think it is likely that he and other white performers made up a lot of his lyrics and presented them as if they were African American, as was a common part of the minstrel tradition that followed. African Americans were represented as comical and uneducated by white performers and much of that was created by those performers.

But mixed in were also lyrics that came from interaction with African American performers. African Americans in the s and s were exposed to songs from the minstrel stage, and likely some of the lyrics we have include lines adapted from those popular songs. So the flow of music between white culture and African American culture make it difficult to be sure about origins. But there are some guesses that can be made. Charleston Gals. As I walked down the new-cut road, I met the tap and then the toad; The toad commenced to whistle and sing, And the possum cut the pigeon wing.

This verse recalls, and might have inspired, the outlandish verse about the Bowery gal whose heel covered the whole sidewalk — which I hope means that her dancing covered the sidewalk and not that her Beautiful lady want group sex Buffalo were huge. These help to make a stronger connection between the songs and the minstrel performers. Donaldson, who, like Rice, performed comedy and songs before black-face performances became the minstrel shows, certainly took inspiration and some material from Rice.

Scarborough was right that white performers who first worked in black face were finding ideas in African American dance songs. Some of these they no Beautiful lady want group sex Buffalo heard in their travels performing in the south. But Rice and Donaldson, among other performers, were headquartered near the Bowery Theater in New York City and had examples of African American music much closer to hand. New York, on the lower East Side, was a developing culture of music and dance began in the late s attracting working class young people to clubs where European Americans and pople of color mingled freely.

By descriptions of the wild music and dance began to appear. Norton, Much of what he found was distorted, negative, exaggerated, and focused on the brothels and sexual aspects of the club scene. So Cockrell worked to read between the lines of these sources to piece together what was really going on in this vibrant music and dance culture that contributed to the musical forms we know today. They were working class people of all ethnic groups creating their own colorful fashions, dances, and music. For New York men who were the main early audience for performances by artists such as Tom Rice, William Donaldson, and William Henry Lane, the Bowery gals were exciting and they wanted to hear about them.

I wonder if it could even have started earlier. Could there have been a version that came out of the clubs themselves? It is, after all, a dance song. But the printed versions on their own do not take us back that far. The song does praise the young lady. She is said to be beautiful and the singer says that he wants to marry her. As the Ethiopian Serenaders traveled, they began changing the song to fit other audiences and call other young women from other cities to dance. The Ethiopian Serenaders performed at the White House for President Tyler in and this experience early in the development of the minstrel shows led them to try to be more refined and respectable than some of the other performers.
