Put on Your Old Grey Bonnet


Transcribed from Casa Loma Orchestra, vocal by Pee Wee Hunt, recorded March 23, 1931.

Put on your old grey bonnet
With blue ribbons on it,
And we'll hitch old dobbin to the shay,
Over fields of clover
We will drive to Dover
On our golden wedding day.

Put on your old grey bonnet
With blue ribbons on it,
All right!
Hitch old Dobbin to the shay,
Oh, yeah, yeah!
Through fields of clover
We're goin' on to Dover
Tell me more!
With big cats like this over Dover!
Oh, yeah!
