Skip to my Lou
Last updated: 04.09.21
We used to sing Skip to my Louin the Idle Fellows and I still sing it a fair bit myself because it goes down well with German audiences on account of the easy chorus (there are only five simple every-day English words in it!. The version I sing can be found in Lieder, Songs und Gospels 3.
A more difficult version can be found in Folks & Blues Spielheft 1 which has a rumba-style accompaniment.
