LITTLE GIRL WITH HER HAIR ALL DOWN BEHIND. Old-Time, Breakdown. USA, Oklahoma. A Major. AEae tuning (fiddle). AABB. Source W.S. Collins sang to the tune:

Sixteen miles away form home
Chickens a-crowin' for day,
Sitting and a-talkin' to my pretty little girl,
I'd better be gettin' away.

Can you change a nickel?
Can you change a dime?
Can you change a pretty little girl
With her hair all down behind.

I can change a nickel,
I can change a dime,
I can change a pretty little girl
With her hair all down behind.
