Lyrics: First verse My gal and I, we had a fight And I'm all by myself, I guess she thinks, now that she's gone, I'll lay right on the shelf; I'm gonna show her she's all wrong, No lonesome stuff for mine, I won't sit home, all alone, She'll soon find that I'm: Chorus Runnin' wild, lost control, Runnin wild, Mighty bold, Feelin' gay, reckless too, Care free mind all the time, never blue; Always goin' don't know where, always showing', [Chorus continues onto next (missing) page] Second verse When I first met that gal of mine, It seemed just like a dream, But when she tho't she had me right She started actin' mean; Like Mary led her little lamb She led me all the time, Until the worm had to turn, That's the reason I'm: (Chorus)

The derogatory terms, images, and ideas that appear in some of this sheet music are not condoned by the University of Mississippi. They do represent the attitudes of a number of Americans at the times the songs were published. As such, it is hoped that the sheet music in this collection can aid students of music, history, and other disciplines to better understand popular American music and racial stereotypes from the 19th- and early 20th-centuries.
